    Hi,

    I’m planning to use WinPkFilter on a Gigabit Ethernet LAN.
    That allows up to 9000 bytes length frames, a.k.a ‘Jumbo Frame’,
    but can I handle it with current version ?

    Hi,

    Standard build of WinpkFilter operates with 1514 bytes frames only. It simply forbids usage of larger frame size by intercepting some requests from the protocls to network card driver.

    However if there is a requirement to suppport larger frame size then drivers can be easily rebuilded (by changing few constants).

    Is source code license the only way to do that?

    Developer License is enough, since it already includes custom build it won’t be a problem to change one additional constant.
