Under Windows XP Run=>cmd I get

ping -f -l 1490
Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set
<repeated several times>

ping -f -l 1460
Reply from ...bytes = 56 (sent 1460) time = 81ms ...

Is there a similar option for ping under Fedora?

To return to my original question,
I wonder if "sudo ifconfig eth1 mtu 1460"
does not in fact have the required effect?
(It does change the MTU, as given by ifconfig;
but I wondered if the change had to be made
somewhere else as well?)
