MTU Size

Talk status
This discussion is done.

This article is missing a entry on howto change the MTU size permanently. Could you add a entry with content like this? :

== MTU Size ==

To set a specific MTU size for an interface edit the {{Path|/etc/conf.d/net}} file like below:

{{FileBox|filename=/etc/conf.d/net|title=MTU size|lang=bash|1=
mtu_eth0="1492"
}}

Where 1492 bytes is only a example.

This doesn't seem like something we should necessary add to the Handbook. I'm going to add it to the netifrc article instead and will create a link in the Handbook's network section to that article. This way many more things can be added later by yourself and others without the Handbook team's involvement. Remember: Handbook doesn't cover everything, just some basics do get newcomers started with Gentoo :) Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 23:16, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Find the MTU entry in the Configuration section. --Maffblaster (talk) 23:19, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

PPP credentials location

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

/etc/ppp/pap-secrets must not necessarily be the right place to store the PPP credentials. The peer might request CHAP authentication; the secret then needs to be stored in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets. --Thomasb (talk) 12:39, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
