Does the ip_en converter handle fragmentation? From the name,
“IP/Ethernet Converter”, one would expect to find complete IP packets
(up to at least 64 Kbytes long) moving in both directions at the top of
the converter, and, of course, packets of 1500 bytes or less at the
bottom. My rudimentary tests, however, indicate that this is not true.
Are my tests faulty, have I inserted by “IP/IP BELOW” filter at the
wrong level, or is ip_en merely an ARP handler? Whichever the case, a
few more words of documentation on the subject might be nice.
