Re: MTU of the Internet?
Not everyone uses Cisco. Some of us use Bay, others are home-brewed GateD on PC/unix, still others are Ascend GRF. I think, though, that covers everything ISP's use (ignoring dialup servers). Nanog is not a cisco user group -- remember who owns GateD these days. William Allen Simpson wrote: > > > From: "Perry E.
