Buffer Length in Networks

While transmitting a packet through a Network , we will use Buffers ...  these buffers are of
1)fixed length or
2)infinite { very large} length . What are the advantages & disadvantages of these two techni ques

- your ans are welcome ...
1 Solution
Fixed lengt is more secure (extra data from outside can be send with the buffer, but then the packet size is not correct anymore...(a real hacker can send his data in fixed size packages too, but it is slow and difficult)
On an internal network just use INFINITE...it is faster..
(small size IP-packet-size is also a must for accessing https sites trough a lot of cable-ISP's)

I hope that answers your question

(fixed=secure and slower)
(infinite=insecure and faster)

On internal networx
Infinite is probably best..
