    SubjectTunnel hangs
    Date

    Hi,

    I've been looking at my hangs with ip_tunnel and rlogin/telnet. Something
    strange seems to happen with the length field of the packets.

    At the poing of the hang, this is what tcpdump on the remote tunnel end gives:

    00:52:22.710185 gtex02.us.es.login > pi.sitrantor.es.1022: . 16:528(512) ack
    44
    win 4096
    00:52:22.710185 truncated-ip - 56 bytes missing![|tcp] (encap)
    00:52:22.710185 truncated-ip - 404 bytes missing![|tcp] (encap)

    Compiling the tunnel with the debug option I get:

    Old IP Header....
    IP packet:
    --- header len = 20
    --- ip version: 4
    --- ip protocol: 6
    --- source address: 150.214.140.67
    --- destination address: 194.224.147.66
    --- total packet len: 552
    Room left at head: 0
    Room left at tail: 15
    Required room: 36, Tunnel hlen: 36
    New IP Header....
    IP packet:
    --- header len = 20
    --- ip version: 4
    --- ip protocol: 4
    --- source address: 194.224.129.2
    --- destination address: 194.224.129.249
    --- total packet len: 168
    Packet sent through tunnel interface!

    So a packet of 552 has a 36 byte header shoved on it and finishes up to
    be only 168 bytes??

    The tunnel has an mtu of 500, which might well be related, but I can't see
    from the source how the above happens. The byte missing packets arrive
    to the local ppp tunnel machine, but it appears to drop them as the don't
    get onto the local wire.

    I have tcpdumps of most the traffic if anyone can help debug this.
