Hi everybody,

I want my switch to pass IP packet of 2000 bytes it generated. 

Here is my config:

create vlan NEE
config vlan NEE tag 45
config vlan NEE ipaddress 199.199.199.1 255.255.255.252

configure ip-mtu 2000 Vlan NEE

All ports are enabled for jumbo frames.

Am is missing anything as far as this switch is concerned ?


Thanks.

Hi Thomas,

This is what I am seeing:( to the best of my memory, I do not have access to the switch right now)

vlan Zee ipaddress 199.199.199.1/30

config ip-mtu 2000 vlan ZEE

enable jumbo frames ports all

Now if i issue ping from the switch to 199.199.199.2  size 1800 ( neighboring device)with DF bit set, I get following:

Packets is to large, DF bit set, can not fragment it  reply from 199.199.199.1

##############################################

I want to be able to generate such packets so we can check if service provider is allowing such packet across the cloud without fragmentation.

Thanks

Zeeshan,

The configuration changes you have made seem to be correct.  Were you able to make any progress on this?  

Are the switch and 199.199.199.2 directly connected?
