Issue Description
Why does the ping operation fail in Windows XP systems when the ping destination carries the -j option and the source route is set to the firewall address?
Solution
Windows XP systems have problems in supporting ping replies with IP options. The Windows XP systems receive ping reply packets but display timeout. You can upgrade the system to Windows 7 or combine ping and packet capture to resolve this problem.
