1500 byte packets?

$ netstat -I lhip0
Name Mtu Network Address Ipkts Ierrs Opkts Oerrs
Collis
lhip0 65280 192.168.50 hiru_h 574 0 794 0 0

That's for an HIPPI-LE (TCP/IP over HIPPI) network interface on hiru. I
hope a SCSI interface would have a good MTU too, even if it is a bit
slower than HIPPI...
