How can I disable this? Is it also possible to enable a MTU (max transfer unit)setting to my connection? TCP compression loads at system startup, but my serial port modem doesn't support data compression, and that's what's slowing things down (in terms of Internet connectivity) and probably disconnecting me every few minutes (say, six or so...). How about IP header compression?
The modem I use for Linux works fine in Windows 98 and DOS mode, but for some reason, slows to a crawl in Linux in PPP mode. It's not a winmodem, but error control only works in 98 (I think). I have also successfully connected to terminals using Minicom in Linux.
I'm running a current distro of Peanut Linux from http://metalab.unc.edu/peanut
. For more info on my PC and modem, please click on my ID.
Thanks in advance, grater
