-: The maximum packet size parameter is an integer value that limits the size of
-  packets that the endpoint is willing to receive.  This indicates that packets
-  larger than this limit will be dropped.  The default for this parameter is the
-  maximum permitted UDP payload of 65527.  Values below 1200 are invalid.  This
-  limit only applies to protected packets ({{packet-protected}}).
+: The maximum udp size parameter is an integer value that limits the size of
+  UDP payloads that the endpoint is willing to receive.  This indicates that
+  packets larger than this limit are likely not to be processed by the receiver.
