In the following three blogs, we are going to look into two topics, which are by many misunderstood – IP MTU and TCP MSS. I’m going to describe them theoretically and lastly, will provide few examples too.
I thought I’d write this aimed at engineers just starting out though, it should also appeal to more advanced engineers who are still to grasp these two concepts properly:
- Part I – The rationale behind IP-MTU & TCP-MSS
- Part II – Understanding IP-MTU & TCP-MSS
- Part III – IP MTU & TCP-MSS Examples
