Unanswered Question

Is it possible? If yes, could you suggest a software and the settings?

Thanks,

Prakash

I have this problem too.

Thanks Edison....

The mtu is already higher than 1500...and I am using wireshark...but still do not get any larger packet in the sniffer...

If your devices (switches and workstation NIC) support Jumbo frames *and* they are enabled, then I don't know what else to tell you.

Perhaps asking in the wireshark forum should be the next step.
