Windows 2008 & Windows Vista by default do not forward source routed packets. However, if you want to change this behaviour to forward source routed packets (not recommended) or to drop all incoming source packets as well as disable forwarding source routed packets then this can be controlled from the Windows Registry.
The following procedure to edit the Windows Registry should help you enable/disable source routed packets and/or drop incoming source routed packets. This applies to Windows Server 2008 & Windows Vista.
1. Click Start - Search and type “regedit”. This launches the WIndows Registry.
2. In the registry, navigate to the following registry key
3. In the right pane, right-click and select New – DWORD (32-bit value) and set its name as “DisableIPSourceRouting” and set its value as one of the following:
“0″ To Forward all packets
“1″ Not to forward source routed packets (default)
“2″ Drop all incoming source routed packets
If you ever would like to return to defaults, simply delete the key or set its value to “1″ (default).
