Nov 22, 2019 · In fact you can setup the Wireguard VPN with MTU=1500 and it just works, with 1500 byte packets going through the tunnel! I guess it must be slightly less efficient that way though. Certainly avoids all the weird problems you get with other UDP based VPNs if you miscalculate the MTU. Wireguard is THE BEST VPN.

Mar 29, 2017 · Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows 2000, and Microsoft Windows XP use a fixed MTU size of 1500 bytes for all PPP connections and use a fixed MTU size of 1400 bytes for all VPN connections. This is the default setting for PPP clients, for VPN clients, for PPP servers, or for VPN servers that are running Routing and Remote Access. I am very surprised that you say that there were problems when the tunnel MTU was set to 1420 but it worked better when you set the MTU to 1500. This is the opposite of what I would expect (and of what I have experienced in setting up IPSec with GRE in various networks). MTU parameters usually appear in association with a communications interface (NIC, serial port, etc.). The default MTU size is 1500, however for some networking technologies reducing the MTU size and allowing fragmentation can help eliminate some connectivity problems occurring at the protocol level. RESOLUTION: Problems with IPSEC When using a Security Protocol to protect IPsec traffic, packets can often grow to be larger that the Maximum Transmission Unit ( "MTU" ) for a given gateway interface. This is due to the overhead associated with adding new protocol headers and performing packet encapsulation.

Oct 22, 2008 · Reducing MTU value to fix slow CIFS/SMB over VPN. After some research, it seems that our slow file copies over VPN are due to vpn overhead and packet fragmentation. It seems the answer is to reduce the MTU value so when the packet + VPN overhead is sent, it isn't fragmented by the Sonicwall or ISP.

Aug 12, 2014 · Troubleshooting MTU issues. Every network interface is set with an MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) value that defines the byte size of the largest protocol data unit that is allowed to pass.

VPN + MTU Issues¶ Similar to the above, if large packets or high-throughput seems to break over a VPN, enable MSS Clamping for VPN Networks under VPN > IPsec, Advanced Settings tab. The default value for the option is 1400, but try lower values such as 1350, 1300, 1250, etc. Feb 11, 2019 · Now we have other problems with Always On VPN ;-(Hoping Windows 2019 and regedit sort ikev2 connections problems. Thanks for the info. @ Richard you have a few different websites with problems with Always on VPN, maybe send to MS, things to fix in 1908 build 😉 Thank you for your time and help to the community! I tried the web site Anonymity Check. It does 15 checks. The only thumbs down was VPN Fingerprint MTU 1397 Any thoughts on: * Why an MTU of 1397 is a VPN Fingerprint * Why Eddie decided to use an MTU of 1397 ? Thanks.
