Re: maximum segment size

For optimum communications, the number of bytes in the data segment and the header must add up to less than the number of bytes in the maximum transmission unit (MTU).

The same should be handled before being passed from a router.

*Here is the process to follow:

enable           

configure terminal           

interface type number           

ip tcp adjust-mss max-segment-size            500 to 1460

ip mtu bytes           

Hope it helps you understand the term.
