    If the MTU of the two links is different you should look for outgoing
    frames through the router with no reply when the size of reply would be
    large. Thats a clear indication that the remote site has firewalls set up
    by overpaid underbrained morons from one of the many rich and clueless
    consulting firms who think blocking all icmp on a firewall is a valid
    thing to do.
