SSTP accepts client MTU up to 16384 bytes
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST

Description

vyos@vyos# set service sstp-server network-settings mtu 44

  Number 44 is not in the range 128-16384

  Invalid value
  Value validation failed
  Set failed

As this is a point to point link which runs over an IP network I do not know if a MTU up to 16k makes sense at all. I would expect a maximum MTU of 1500bytes minus the overhead of SSTP?

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

As the mtu on an ip network could exceed 1500b it is not so strange to allow larger than 1500b frames on the tunnel. But this could be adjusted to follow the max mtu values on ethernet interfaces. As taken from my head max mtu on ethernet is about 9000b
