Hello All,

Thanks to all who replied to my question. Just want to clarify that I need this information for my research Project. I am trying to measure performance of our server software which delivers Real Time Radar Data from a remote radar site to the client using internet. I want to study how does path taken by packets will effect the performance of our software. Please advise if there are other ways of selecting paths if source routing can't be used.

I am not sure if this is the right forum to seek answer but i
still would like to try. I am graduate student in department of computer
science at colorado state university. I am trying to source route my
packets on the internet, I want my packets to take specified path from
server to client and vice versa. I am aware that source routing option is
disabled because of security risks. I want to know is there any tool which
can help me in finding what routers that can support source routing. It
will be so nice if you could help me as I am not finding appropriate
information..It will help me allot in my research work.
