Description Ricky Ng-Adam 2004-05-24 16:33:23 EDT
Description of problem:

I need to set MTU for my FC2 install so they match the ones my W2K box
uses (otherwise, some web sites such as Slashdot or Yahoo! Mail
time-out when I try to access them).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch system-config-network
2. Try to set MTU
Actual results:

Can't set MTU

Expected results:

Ability to set MTU.

Additional info:

In the meantime, how do I change
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth1 so set the MTU?
Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:20:40 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 2 Sven Neuhaus 2005-10-14 18:37:14 EDT
system-config-network still won't let you configure the MTU even in Fedora Core 4.
You have to add it manually to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth0
but then you may run into bug 170884.
Comment 3 Ricky Ng-Adam 2006-02-25 18:02:29 EST
FC5 test3 doesn't seem to have any MTU options in system-config-network.
