  • set dest-opt {disable | enable}: Block packets with Destination Options header.
  • set hdopt-type <integer>: Block specific Hop-by-Hop and/or Destination Option types (maximum 7 types, each between 0 and 255).
  • set routing {disable | enable}: Block packets with Routing header.
  • set routing-type <integar>: Block specific Routing header types (maximum 7 types, each between 0 and 255).
  • set fragment {disable | enable}: Block packets with Fragment header.
  • set auth {disable | enable}: Block packets with Authentication header.
  • set no-next {disable | enable}: Block packets with No Next header.
