10.3: MTU fixes for Ethernet and Airport connections
Authored by: Jean Boulanger on Nov 24, '03 07:06:09PM

Normally one could test for the max MTU possible, by pinging with large packet sizes and the 'do not fragment' flag set. However this seems to be impossible to do under recent OS X implementations, because the man page, and the usage for ping don't match the executable. For example, the man page says -D is the flag for 'do not fragment', but executable will not accept this flag.

Anybody know how to work around this?
