Packet size limit for IP?

I was wondering if there is a limit to the amount of payload that IP imposes? Or is it strictly the frame payload limit (ethernet) that limits the amount of data per packet?

Re: Packet size limit for IP?

Thanks for the links. So it looks like layer 3 doesn't explicitly impose a payload limitation. The MTU comes from the layer 2 technology being used. Then of course you have the UDP max segment size (~65K). Thanks again!
