Change MTU Settings on Endian Firewall


Have just started playing with Linux. Started with an Endian firewall. Due to restrictions on my ISP I need to change the MTU to 1324 as this is the best for VPN Access into my network. Please help, I'm lost after reading greek for hours

I have used the ifconfig ethx mtu xxxx to change the MTU and this seems to work until the server is restarted

How about adding the command to your startup scripts, device configuration or rc.local?

Looked at the screenshots in the online doc: http://www.endian.it/fileadmin/docum...guration.html?

Unfortunately this does not cover MTU settings. It seems this needs to be done in the root and that is where I am completely lost.

Well, I at least *saw* in one of the shots there was a possibility of *entering* MTU info, so it can be done, maybe ask the vendor.
