enable ip fastforwarding fails


Hello,

i have a Debian 7 Linux (3.2.54-2) and i search for the ip fastforwarding option.
But i can't find it ?

If i try
sysctl -w net.inet.ip.fastforwarding=1
> sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/inet/ip/fastforwarding: no such file or directory.

Can you help me ? Is it possible to add fastforwarding support for an Debian Kernel (or Custom Kernel) or is this only possible in a FreeBSD distri ?

Thank you - i always found this article too - but i'm interested in, why it isn't a parameter in other distributions ?
Is the FreeBDS Kernel quite differt to the "normal" Kernel ?
Or is there any assimilable option in the "normal" Kernel ?

FreeBSD is not linux nor considered a distribution. I'm not a networking expert but the TCP/IP stacks are completely different between the two operating systems. In my limited search I have not found anything similar.

FreeBSD is based on the original UNIX code as tweaked at the University of California at Berkeley, in the 1970's or 80's. Linux was written from scratch. While they might look similar on the surface, both for programmers and users, they are different inside. Most importantly, Linux and FreeBSD (and the other *BSDs) are totally different open source projects.

BSD is based on Unix not linux.
