Known MTU evil (MTU again=>groan)
« on: July 27, 2009, 09:27:39 PM »

Could we find / make a list of verified cases of actual breakage because of MRU/MTU badness / PMTU failure - including particular servers / ISPs that behave badly because of poor MRU/MTU handling?

I'm thinking if we could build up a rogue's gallery, these test cases could be really useful for testing software, routers etc.

The name that seems to periodically keep cropping up & that Im most aware of is Orange.
Please do not PM me with queries for broadband help as I may not be able to respond.
