MTU less than 1500 bytes on Cisco layer 3 switch

Posts: n/a
I want to configure MTU less than 1500 on layer 3 cisco switch 3550
series. Somehow can't configure less than 1500 bytes . Any clues??

you cannot configure less than 1500 bytes, which is the standard
Ethernet frame size. I guess the reason is that, generally speaking,
the switch would have no reason to do anything with the client frames
it receives. Are you running into a specific problem ?
