IP Option Numbers

Registration Procedure(s)
Not defined
Note
The Internet Protocol (IP) has provision for optional header fields
identified by an option type field.  Options 0 and 1 are exactly one
octet which is their type field.  All other options have their one
octet type field, followed by a one octet length field, followed by
length-2 octets of option data.  The option type field is sub-divided
into a one bit copied flag, a two bit class field, and a five bit
option number.  These taken together form an eight bit value for the
option type field.  IP options are commonly referred to by this value.

It is only appropriate to use these values
in explicitly-configured experiments; they MUST NOT be shipped as
defaults in implementations.  See RFC 3692 for details.
