[OLSR-users] Maximum message size

Thank you for the reply...

I need to send alot of data (alot = more then 32Kb)...
In OLSR-plugin, I can see a place where I can set the size of the my own
packets to what ever I want(I think, the default is 512 though)....

What I wonder is if I set my own packets to, let's say, 4096 bytes... will
OLSR fragment it before it sends? I could also try to change the OLSR
packet size to 1024 (or more) and then use that as my own packet size...

Another solution is to set my packets to OLSR max size (512), but then it
will give ALOT of traffic... (64 packets flooding the whole net) :-(

Do anybody have any clue how to best solve my problem?
