    Subject: A New Internet-Draft: Path MTU Discovery

    A New Internet Draft is available from the on-line
    internet-drafts directories.
		    Title:  Path MTU Discovery
		    Authors:  J. Mogul, S. Deering
		    Filename: draft-ietf-mtudisc-pathmtu-02.txt 
    This memo describes a technique for dynamically discovering the
    maximum transmission unit (MTU) of an arbitrary internet path.  It
    specifies a small change to the way routers generate one type of ICMP
    message.  For a path that passes through a router that has not been
    so changed, this technique might not discover the correct Path MTU,
    but it will always choose a Path MTU as accurate as, and in many
    cases more accurate than, the Path MTU that would be chosen by
    current practice.
