 +To change the MTU of an interface on GNU/Linux, you just need to use ifconfig command to do so, like this for example
 +    sudo ifconfig eth0 mtu 1492
 +To change it permanently on Debian, put it in the /​etc/​network/​interfaces file, where almost all network parameters are found. To do this, just add a line mtu to the definition of your interface and save the file.
 +    sudo gedit /​etc/​network/​interfaces
 +iface eth0 inet static
 +mtu 1492
