config IP_MULTICAST
	bool "IP: multicasting"
	help
	  This is code for addressing several networked computers at once,
	  enlarging your kernel by about 2 KB. You need multicasting if you
	  intend to participate in the MBONE, a high bandwidth network on top
	  of the Internet which carries audio and video broadcasts. More
	  information about the MBONE is on the WWW at
	  <https://www.savetz.com/mbone/>. For most people, it's safe to say N.

config IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER
	bool "IP: advanced router"
	help
	  If you intend to run your Linux box mostly as a router, i.e. as a
	  computer that forwards and redistributes network packets, say Y; you
	  will then be presented with several options that allow more precise
	  control about the routing process.

	  The answer to this question won't directly affect the kernel:
	  answering N will just cause the configurator to skip all the
	  questions about advanced routing.

	  Note that your box can only act as a router if you enable IP
	  forwarding in your kernel; you can do that by saying Y to "/proc
	  file system support" and "Sysctl support" below and executing the
	  line

	  echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

	  at boot time after the /proc file system has been mounted.

	  If you turn on IP forwarding, you should consider the rp_filter, which
	  automatically rejects incoming packets if the routing table entry
	  for their source address doesn't match the network interface they're
	  arriving on. This has security advantages because it prevents the
	  so-called IP spoofing, however it can pose problems if you use
	  asymmetric routing (packets from you to a host take a different path
	  than packets from that host to you) or if you operate a non-routing
	  host which has several IP addresses on different interfaces. To turn
	  rp_filter on use:

	  echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/<device>/rp_filter
	   or
	  echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/rp_filter

	  Note that some distributions enable it in startup scripts.
	  For details about rp_filter strict and loose mode read
	  <file:Documentation/networking/ip-sysctl.rst>.

	  If unsure, say N here.

config IP_FIB_TRIE_STATS
	bool "FIB TRIE statistics"
	depends on IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER
	help
	  Keep track of statistics on structure of FIB TRIE table.
	  Useful for testing and measuring TRIE performance.

config IP_MULTIPLE_TABLES
	bool "IP: policy routing"
	depends on IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER
	select FIB_RULES
	help
	  Normally, a router decides what to do with a received packet based
	  solely on the packet's final destination address. If you say Y here,
	  the Linux router will also be able to take the packet's source
	  address into account. Furthermore, the TOS (Type-Of-Service) field
	  of the packet can be used for routing decisions as well.

	  If you need more information, see the Linux Advanced
	  Routing and Traffic Control documentation at
	  <https://lartc.org/howto/lartc.rpdb.html>

	  If unsure, say N.

config IP_ROUTE_MULTIPATH
	bool "IP: equal cost multipath"
	depends on IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER
	help
	  Normally, the routing tables specify a single action to be taken in
	  a deterministic manner for a given packet. If you say Y here
	  however, it becomes possible to attach several actions to a packet
	  pattern, in effect specifying several alternative paths to travel
	  for those packets. The router considers all these paths to be of
	  equal "cost" and chooses one of them in a non-deterministic fashion
	  if a matching packet arrives.

config IP_ROUTE_VERBOSE
	bool "IP: verbose route monitoring"
	depends on IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER
	help
	  If you say Y here, which is recommended, then the kernel will print
	  verbose messages regarding the routing, for example warnings about
	  received packets which look strange and could be evidence of an
	  attack or a misconfigured system somewhere. The information is
	  handled by the klogd daemon which is responsible for kernel messages
	  ("man klogd").

config IP_ROUTE_CLASSID
	bool

config IP_PNP
	bool "IP: kernel level autoconfiguration"
	help
	  This enables automatic configuration of IP addresses of devices and
	  of the routing table during kernel boot, based on either information
	  supplied on the kernel command line or by BOOTP or RARP protocols.
	  You need to say Y only for diskless machines requiring network
	  access to boot (in which case you want to say Y to "Root file system
	  on NFS" as well), because all other machines configure the network
	  in their startup scripts.

config IP_PNP_DHCP
	bool "IP: DHCP support"
	depends on IP_PNP
	help
	  If you want your Linux box to mount its whole root file system (the
	  one containing the directory /) from some other computer over the
	  net via NFS and you want the IP address of your computer to be
	  discovered automatically at boot time using the DHCP protocol (a
	  special protocol designed for doing this job), say Y here. In case
	  the boot ROM of your network card was designed for booting Linux and
	  does DHCP itself, providing all necessary information on the kernel
	  command line, you can say N here.

	  If unsure, say Y. Note that if you want to use DHCP, a DHCP server
	  must be operating on your network.  Read
	  <file:Documentation/admin-guide/nfs/nfsroot.rst> for details.

config IP_PNP_BOOTP
	bool "IP: BOOTP support"
	depends on IP_PNP
	help
	  If you want your Linux box to mount its whole root file system (the
	  one containing the directory /) from some other computer over the
	  net via NFS and you want the IP address of your computer to be
	  discovered automatically at boot time using the BOOTP protocol (a
	  special protocol designed for doing this job), say Y here. In case
	  the boot ROM of your network card was designed for booting Linux and

	  Read <file:Documentation/admin-guide/nfs/nfsroot.rst> for details.

config IP_PNP_RARP
	bool "IP: RARP support"
	depends on IP_PNP
	help
	  If you want your Linux box to mount its whole root file system (the
	  one containing the directory /) from some other computer over the
	  net via NFS and you want the IP address of your computer to be
	  discovered automatically at boot time using the RARP protocol (an
	  older protocol which is being obsoleted by BOOTP and DHCP), say Y
	  here. Note that if you want to use RARP, a RARP server must be
	  operating on your network. Read
	  <file:Documentation/admin-guide/nfs/nfsroot.rst> for details.

config NET_IPIP
	tristate "IP: tunneling"
	select INET_TUNNEL
	select NET_IP_TUNNEL
	help
	  Tunneling means encapsulating data of one protocol type within
	  another protocol and sending it over a channel that understands the
	  encapsulating protocol. This particular tunneling driver implements
	  encapsulation of IP within IP, which sounds kind of pointless, but
	  can be useful if you want to make your (or some other) machine
	  appear on a different network than it physically is, or to use
	  mobile-IP facilities (allowing laptops to seamlessly move between
	  networks without changing their IP addresses).

	  Saying Y to this option will produce two modules ( = code which can
	  be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you
	  want). Most people won't need this and can say N.

config NET_IPGRE_DEMUX
	tristate "IP: GRE demultiplexer"

	  This is helper module to demultiplex GRE packets on GRE version field criteria.
	  Required by ip_gre and pptp modules.

config NET_IPGRE
	tristate "IP: GRE tunnels over IP"

	select NET_IP_TUNNEL
	help
	  Tunneling means encapsulating data of one protocol type within
	  another protocol and sending it over a channel that understands the
	  encapsulating protocol. This particular tunneling driver implements
	  GRE (Generic Routing Encapsulation) and at this time allows
	  encapsulating of IPv4 or IPv6 over existing IPv4 infrastructure.
	  This driver is useful if the other endpoint is a Cisco router: Cisco
	  likes GRE much better than the other Linux tunneling driver ("IP
	  tunneling" above). In addition, GRE allows multicast redistribution
	  through the tunnel.

config NET_IPGRE_BROADCAST
	bool "IP: broadcast GRE over IP"
	depends on IP_MULTICAST && NET_IPGRE
	help
	  One application of GRE/IP is to construct a broadcast WAN (Wide Area
	  Network), which looks like a normal Ethernet LAN (Local Area
	  Network), but can be distributed all over the Internet. If you want
	  to do that, say Y here and to "IP multicast routing" below.

config IP_MROUTE_COMMON
	bool

config IP_MROUTE
	bool "IP: multicast routing"
	depends on IP_MULTICAST
	select IP_MROUTE_COMMON
	help
	  This is used if you want your machine to act as a router for IP
	  packets that have several destination addresses. It is needed on the
	  MBONE, a high bandwidth network on top of the Internet which carries
	  audio and video broadcasts. In order to do that, you would most
	  likely run the program mrouted. If you haven't heard about it, you
	  don't need it.

config IP_MROUTE_MULTIPLE_TABLES
	bool "IP: multicast policy routing"
	depends on IP_MROUTE && IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER
	select FIB_RULES
	help
	  Normally, a multicast router runs a userspace daemon and decides
	  what to do with a multicast packet based on the source and
	  destination addresses. If you say Y here, the multicast router
	  will also be able to take interfaces and packet marks into
	  account and run multiple instances of userspace daemons
	  simultaneously, each one handling a single table.

	  If unsure, say N.

config IP_PIMSM_V1
	bool "IP: PIM-SM version 1 support"
	depends on IP_MROUTE
	help
	  Kernel side support for Sparse Mode PIM (Protocol Independent
	  Multicast) version 1. This multicast routing protocol is used widely
	  because Cisco supports it. You need special software to use it
	  (pimd-v1). Please see <http://netweb.usc.edu/pim/> for more
	  information about PIM.

	  Say Y if you want to use PIM-SM v1. Note that you can say N here if
	  you just want to use Dense Mode PIM.

config IP_PIMSM_V2
	bool "IP: PIM-SM version 2 support"
	depends on IP_MROUTE
	help
	  Kernel side support for Sparse Mode PIM version 2. In order to use
	  this, you need an experimental routing daemon supporting it (pimd or
	  gated-5). This routing protocol is not used widely, so say N unless
	  you want to play with it.

config SYN_COOKIES
	bool "IP: TCP syncookie support"
	help
	  Normal TCP/IP networking is open to an attack known as "SYN
	  flooding". This denial-of-service attack prevents legitimate remote
	  users from being able to connect to your computer during an ongoing
	  attack and requires very little work from the attacker, who can
	  operate from anywhere on the Internet.

	  SYN cookies provide protection against this type of attack. If you
	  say Y here, the TCP/IP stack will use a cryptographic challenge
	  protocol known as "SYN cookies" to enable legitimate users to
	  continue to connect, even when your machine is under attack. There
	  is no need for the legitimate users to change their TCP/IP software;
	  SYN cookies work transparently to them. For technical information
	  about SYN cookies, check out <https://cr.yp.to/syncookies.html>.

	  If you are SYN flooded, the source address reported by the kernel is
	  likely to have been forged by the attacker; it is only reported as
	  an aid in tracing the packets to their actual source and should not
	  be taken as absolute truth.

	  SYN cookies may prevent correct error reporting on clients when the
	  server is really overloaded. If this happens frequently better turn
	  them off.

	  If you say Y here, you can disable SYN cookies at run time by
	  saying Y to "/proc file system support" and
	  "Sysctl support" below and executing the command

	  echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_syncookies

	  after the /proc file system has been mounted.

	  If unsure, say N.

	  coalescence. In addition, it will decrease its cwnd multiplicatively
	  instead of linearly.

	  Note that in general congestion avoidance (cwnd decreased when # packets
	  queued grows) cannot coexist with congestion control (cwnd decreased only
	  when there is packet loss) due to fairness issues. One scenario when they
	  can coexist safely is when the CA flows have RTTs << CC flows RTTs.

	  TCP Veno is a sender-side only enhancement of TCP to obtain better
	  throughput over wireless networks. TCP Veno makes use of state
	  distinguishing to circumvent the difficult judgment of the packet loss
	  type. TCP Veno cuts down less congestion window in response to random
	  loss packets.

	  YeAH-TCP is a sender-side high-speed enabled TCP congestion control
	  algorithm, which uses a mixed loss/delay approach to compute the
	  congestion window. It's design goals target high efficiency,
	  internal, RTT and Reno fairness, resilience to link loss while
	  keeping network elements load as low as possible.

config TCP_CONG_DCTCP
	tristate "DataCenter TCP (DCTCP)"
	default n
	help
	  DCTCP leverages Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN) in the network to
	  provide multi-bit feedback to the end hosts. It is designed to provide:

	  - High burst tolerance (incast due to partition/aggregate),
	  - Low latency (short flows, queries),
	  - High throughput (continuous data updates, large file transfers) with
	    commodity, shallow-buffered switches.

	  All switches in the data center network running DCTCP must support
	  ECN marking and be configured for marking when reaching defined switch
	  buffer thresholds. The default ECN marking threshold heuristic for
	  DCTCP on switches is 20 packets (30KB) at 1Gbps, and 65 packets
	  (~100KB) at 10Gbps, but might need further careful tweaking.

	  CAIA Delay-Gradient (CDG) is a TCP congestion control that modifies
	  the TCP sender in order to:

	  o Use the delay gradient as a congestion signal.
	  o Back off with an average probability that is independent of the RTT.
	  o Coexist with flows that use loss-based congestion control.
	  o Tolerate packet loss unrelated to congestion.

config TCP_CONG_BBR

	default n
	help

	  BBR (Bottleneck Bandwidth and RTT) TCP congestion control aims to
	  maximize network utilization and minimize queues. It builds an explicit
	  model of the bottleneck delivery rate and path round-trip propagation
	  delay. It tolerates packet loss and delay unrelated to congestion. It
	  can operate over LAN, WAN, cellular, wifi, or cable modem links. It can
	  coexist with flows that use loss-based congestion control, and can
	  operate with shallow buffers, deep buffers, bufferbloat, policers, or
	  AQM schemes that do not provide a delay signal. It requires the fq
	  ("Fair Queue") pacing packet scheduler.
