Can the "MTU" setting (see, "Off-Site Reload Server / Slow or Failing Backups Over Slow WAN Links") be disabled, allowing NFS to determine its own buffer size?  If so, how is this done?


Edit the profile's conf file (/opt/beginfinite/reload/conf/[profile].conf):
1.  Make a backup copy of the conf file.

2.  Open the original conf file.

3.  Edit the line, "CLIENT_NFS_OPTIONS=tcp,rsize=[number],wsize=[number]" to read "CLIENT_NFS_OPTIONS=tcp,hard".

4.  Save your changes.
