Isn't there mtu discovery that takes place? If we are large at 1500 and their end is lower wont the negotiation on size take place?That depends on the link - if you have a cable modem at one site and an ADSL link at the other the WAN link MTU and MSS would be different.
I'm going to get training. I heard of MUM, and I think we might go this time.Get yourself to the next MUM that you can - The bits on QoS were worth the airfare and hotel alone.Point us to some GOOD easy documentation for queue trees...
