Configuring the Maximum Receive Unit for PPP

You can optionally configure the maximum receive unit (MRU) for PPP or MLPPP interfaces. You can configure the maximum number of renegotiation attempts from the Interface Configuration Mode, the Subinterface Configuration mode, and the Profile Configuration mode.

Note: We recommend you coordinate this value with the network administrator on the other end of the line.

If the value configured for the PPP MRU is greater than the value of the lower-layer MRU minus the PPP header length, the router logs a warning message and uses the lesser of the configured MRU value or the lower-layer MRU value minus the PPP header length to negotiate the local MRU. If the value configured for the PPP MRU conflicts with a similar value configured for another protocol, such as the MTU value for PPPoE, the router uses the lesser of the two values.
