    hello

    I have a doubt, my vps is centos 6 with cpanel and a costumer is asking me to disable tcp timestamps in their repository due security reasons. what do you think guys? does it affect cpanel service?

    he's asking for this:

    To disable TCP timestamps add the line 'net.ipv4.tcp_timestamps = 0' to

    /etc/sysctl.conf. and execute 'sysctl -p' to apply the settings at runtime

    it's the first time I receive this petition so that's my big doubt.

    Thanks!

    There's a discussion on this from a few years ago I found on google that might be worth a look:
