:You'd probably configure normally with ifconfig, and then use 'route' to
:create a static route to "mi" that uses the different MTU size, and then
:again for "pandora".  i.e. 1500 is the default, and 8000 is the special
:case.  I'm saying this without having tried it, of course.

   It's worth a shot.  I'm not sure if the interface mtu is a cap or just
   a suggested default.

How do you even add an explicit route to a machine already on the local
network? Did anybody ever try that? Thanks!


I seem to fail the see the logic in this, IMHO when a device is reachable on its MAC layer and if the other node is on the same subnet, the NIC will always try to reach that node directly?
