gnutls_dtls_set_mtu − API function


, unsigned int void gnutls_dtls_set_mtu(gnutls_session_t

gnutls_session_t session
            is a gnutls_session_t type.

unsigned int mtu
            The maximum transfer unit of the transport

This function will set the maximum transfer unit of the
transport that DTLS packets are sent over. Note that this
should exclude the IP (or IPv6) and UDP headers. So for DTLS
over IPv6 on an Ethernet device with MTU 1500, the DTLS MTU
set with this function would be 1500 − 40 (IPV6 header) − 8
(UDP header) = 1452.
