[Bug 920257] Re: Support for MTU 1500 for pppoe (RFC 4638)


Ubuntu has 2.4.6-3ubuntu1 in Vivid, which is greater than
2.4.5+git20130610-1 so I presume this is fixed now.

** Changed in: ppp (Ubuntu)
       Status: Confirmed => Fix Released

  Support for MTU 1500 for pppoe (RFC 4638)

Status in ppp package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  My ISP (AAISP.org.uk) support PPPoE connections with MTU of 1500 (using mini
  jumbo frames) as pre RFC 4638 however the version of PPPoE included doesn't allow
  for setting the MTU larger than 1492.

  there is a patch (from May/Aug 2010) in the upstream ppp codebase (Patch named
  "rp-pppoe: allow MTU to be increased up to 1500") is there a chance of getting
  this patch applied?
