How to change the TTL Value of all outgoing packets in Microsoft Forefront TMG 2010?

I would like to change the TTL to 128 for all packets going from my external NIC.  Using Linux IP Tables I can use the command "iptables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j TTL --ttl-set 128". How do I do the same thing using Microsoft Forefront TMG 2010?

You don't use FTMG to do it - the TTL is set at the OS level, not the application level. Anyway, the default value for Windows 2008 and Vista is 128 by default.

This is a link to a reference just in case you want to set it to something else. - yes, they spelt it wrong but the link is correct.....

The problem is that when a client desktop connect to an external site, FTMG deprecates the TTL of those packets by one.  I want to reset those packets TTL to 128 so it appears that all traffic comes from FTMG server.  I don't think setting the default TTL on the interface will fix this.  But I will give it a try.

It didn't work.  It does not reset the TTL of the traffic coming from the private network.  Is there a way in Windows 2008 R2 or FTMG to force all traffic coming from a NIC to have a TTL of 128?

I guess no one can answer this question.  I guess I will have to switch back to Linux and iptables, because it seams that Microsoft products are incapable of changing the TTL for routed packets.
