I have a ping question maybe someone can shed some light on. I've been
fooling around with changing packet data size for ping to do some
tests. Anyway, I've noticed I can not send data larger than 65467 plus
8 bytes for a header ... total 65475. Anything larger is said to be too
Now ICMP is in the same layer as IP right? Below that we are
essentially down to the physical layer putting stuff into frames. What
is causing the 65467 limit on the size of the ping? ... frames???
It said use Windows 98 or better so I installed Linux.
