Just server daemons. For your purposes in this thread, the fileserver is
the only relevant daemon to use it with. (I don't think anything is
necessary on the Unix CM to use them, but I'm not the one to ask.)

You generally want jumbograms off, though, unless the only communication
between fileservers and clients is on networks you control, and you know
what such networks can handle fragmented packets. They're usually not
beneficial across the general Internet from what I've seen.
