Eset Smart Security 6 killing jumbo frames (in XP)


Recommended Posts

I was trying to get jumbo frames working on a PC that dual boots Windows 7 & Windows XP.  It works fine in Windows 7 but the Eset Smart Security firewall seems to block/disable jumbo frames in Windows XP.  (I was running v6.0.316.)  When I have jumbo frames enabled, if I untick the box next to "Eset Personal Firewall" in my network card configuration, jumbo frames work fine.  But if I re-enable it (tick the box), then jumbo frames are disabled again.

 

I've read about this being a problem with previous versions of Smart Security but I thought it had been fixed.  And it doesn't seem to cause a problem in Windows 7, just with XP.  Has anyone been able to get jumbo frames working in XP?  Is there some setting I need to change?

I assume it's because Windows XP didn't support lightweight drivers yet. Jumbo frames are supported in the ESET lightweight filter as of v6.
