QID 115284 IP Forwarding Enabled: How does Qualys check for this on Linux?

I detected QID 115284 during an authenticated scan on a Linux server:

 

RESULTS:

sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward

net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

 

The system admin has asked, "What command is Qualys using to check this?"

 

I haven't the faintest idea.

 

The Qualys KnowledgeBase for this QID doesn't indicate any helpful information.

 

I called Qualys Support and they "do not know".

 

I'm hoping someone in the community can help.

 

Thanks!
