We are using Catalyst 2950G-24-EI and have set the system MTU as max value 1530. This device is connected to 7606 router where jumbo frames are allowed and having the interface mtu as more than 9000.

But i am not able ping from the switch to router or viceversa with datagram of more than 1500 and wants to know whether it is a normal behaviour or should i able to send more????

Pls. sugesst if any tunnig is required.

Thx in advance.

A reboot of the switch is required when you change the MTU.

Hope that helps.
