Description linus.luessing 2015-03-09 21:26:48 UTC
We are having a recent Arch Linux here, but unfortunately the MTUBytes option seems to get ignored for GRE tunnels:

-----
$ cat /etc/systemd/network/31-somename.netdev
[NetDev]
Name=somename
Kind=gre
MTUBytes=1400

[Tunnel]
Local=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Remote=yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
TTL=64
-----

Even after a complete system reboot the MTU is set to 1476 instead of 1400.


Systemd packages:
-----
$ pacman -Qs "systemd"
local/libsystemd 218-2
    systemd client libraries
local/systemd 218-2
    system and service manager
local/systemd-sysvcompat 218-2 (base)
    sysvinit compat for systemd
