    Greetings.

    I'm thinking about a following problem:
    I need to synchronize time between multiple users, and also prevent them from lying about their time when they send certain important packets to the server (not every packet). I know that NTP solves first problem, but I've been wondering if it's possible to solve second one by enabling this option for those important packets and making sure time differences between user and first few routers he connects through stay close to constant.

    I can't find much information on this option though, mostly stuff like "Internet timestamp is a forced option used for debugging purposes only!" which is a bit worrying. What issues might I run into with it?

    Best regards.
