Description of problem:
Pump does not appear to respond to the 'interface-mtu' option supplied in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Server is stock RedHat 7.1, running dhcp-2.0pl5-4, with 'options
interface-mtu 1300' in the configuration.
2. Client is stock RedHat 7.2, running pump-0.8.11-7.
3. Boot up client.
Actual Results: Client obtains network setup correctly from server except for
MTU, which remains at the default 1500. It needs to be stepped down to work
properly when connected to BT Surftime in the UK, because of their ridiculous
Expected Results: Pump should have configured interface's MTU.
It needs to be stepped down to work properly when connected to BT Surftime in
the UK, because of their ridiculous tunnelling setup. I'm guessing it's fairly
easy to add this, but I haven't had a chance to look at it, so I guess it should
be filed as a bug.
closing as supported products don't use pump anymore
