Customize Bip IP Edge Client MTU size

Hello,

 

I seek for an option to decrease the MTU size the Edge Client uses. Background is several laptops have performance problems and with an decrease MTU size of 1300, they run better. We could adjust the MTU size with an netsh command on windows, but this requires admin rights. So best option would be to have a special Edge Client installer package, with an adjusted MTU size, rolled out by the Viprion itself.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thx, Stephan

I don't think you can change that in the edge client itself. However, you could try different TCP profiles in the virtual server used by the APM. That may fix the performance problems, without needing to change the MTU.

 

In newer version is there still no option to set the MTU of the Edge Client from the APM connectivity profile or after install from the Windows workstation?
