Fragmentation and MTU - Tutorial

Configuring IPsec VPN Fragmentation and MTU Chapter 5 Configuring IPsec VPN Fragmentation and MTU Understanding IPsec VPN Fragmentation and MTU These notes apply to the fragmentation process: † The fragmentation process described in Figure 5-1 applies only when the DF (Don’t Fragment) bit is not set for cleartext packets entering the flow chart. Set MTU in VPN environment in case of throughput issues MTU Test in a non-VPN Environment. Example: Ping -f -l 1464 If the ping is successful (no packet loss) at 1464 payload size, the standard MTU will be "1464 (payload size) + 20 (IP Header) + 8 (ICMP Header)" = 1492. 1464 Max packet size from Ping Test + 28 IP and ICMP headers 1492 is your optimum MTU Setting MTU Size Issues | Network World

May 07, 2015 · Post-fragmentation by the IPSec VPN SPA will be based on this MTU. Fragmentation will be performed as follows: If IPSec prefragmentation is enabled, the IPSec VPN SPA will perform prefragmentation of packets that exceed the IP MTU of the VTI tunnel interface. The IPSec VPN SPA will not perform post-fragmentation. Nov 28, 2016 · Begin increasing the packet size from this number in small increments until you find the largest size that does not fragment. Add 28 to that number (IP/ICMP headers) to get the optimal MTU setting. For example, if the largest packet size from ping tests is 1462, add 28 to 1462 to get a total of 1490 which is the optimal MTU setting. For more information about VPN fragmentation, refer to sk98074 - MTU and Fragmentation Issues in IPsec VPN. This hotfix , adds the new kernel parameter sim_ipsec_dont_fragment . If this parameter is enabled, then the behavior of Security Gateway with enabled SecureXL changes to the following: Hello, we have a Ethernet-Link (no VPN from Checkpoint) to a network where the MTU is 1422. If we set the mtu on the interface and disable SecureXL the Clients (with default MTU of 1500) get the ICMP Fragmentation Packet and start to send packets with smaller MTU. When we reactivate SecureXL the Cl
