The following script makes it easy to set the MTU size if you are using RedHat or CentOS 7.x, and has also been tested successfully on RedHat 6.x.
Normally the MTU size should be set correctly using Path MTU discovery, but this may not always work.
Having successfully configured a Raspberry Pi as a wireless access point I decided to see if I could use a similar approach to build a transparent Tor proxy.
What do you do if you want to see if you are receiving any packets on specific network port, well you could use a tool like TCPDump – or you could do something using a short python script.
I recently wanted to experiment with one of my machines by adding a second network card and using it to forward packets from one network to another.
When setting up my latest Raspberry Pi recently I discovered that configuring the wireless network on Raspbian ‘Stretch’ is done slightly differently from previous versions.
While trying to sort out a couple of subnets the other day I remembered that there is a handy perl script that does a nice job of displaying the characteristics of a particular network – to install it you need … Continue reading
Though in general it is not necessary there are (rare) occasions when it is necessary to set the MTU size explicitly, generally caused by issues with path MTU discovery.
The latest versions of the kernel now rely on the BIOS enumeration of device names which means that the name of the network interface can change depending on your bus configuration (specifically where your network interface is connected).
If you are trying to figure out how to manually configure the wireless network on your Raspberry Pi then you should be able to find what you need here.
