Introduced : BIG-IP_v13.0.0
Sets the IP header TTL value modes for the specified TCP profiles. The TTL (Time To Live) field in an IPv4 header represents the number of remaining hops before the packet will be discarded by a receiving IP layer. The field &aposhop limit&apos in IPv6 implements the same functionality as TTL. This method works for both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic. The different modes for outgoing TTL field value are to set it to a constant value or to decrement/retain from the incoming TTL value.
