The IP Record Route option enables the recording of the path where each router traversed inserts its IP address (up to 9 routers). (Traceroute is likely to be used instead but I want to understand record route). So my question is:
When you send a packet with record route option enabled, how do you get the response?
For example, if we have the path $A\rightarrow R_1 \rightarrow R_2 \rightarrow B$, and I send a packet with IP record route option enabled, how will $A$ get the response that $R_1$ and $R_2$ were on the route? I don't see anywhere that B has to respond to the record route option. Thanks.
