FreePBX System Admin - Feature Request - "MTU" in Network Settings

Is it possible to add an MTU field to the Network Settings in System Admin?

I only ask because Asterisk is finicky about the MTU for certain ethernet devices, and it would be nice to be able to override it from the interface…

Or is there another way to add the MTU while allowing System Admin to override the settings?

Why don’t you change it on the server?

and then add MTU=1500

But, if you use System Admin for network settings at all, it removes the MTU line. It just seems neater.

If that is true you can change the MTU line with the ifconfig command in /etc/rc.d/rc.local. This will keep you clear of the web script that sets up the file.


in /etc/rc.d/rc.local at the end of the file add the line ‘ifconfig eth1 mtu 1245’

This is an example, you need to change to match your configuration.

Hey Sky,
Sorry for the late reply. How could I go about adding the MTU myself into the module? Git?
