    SubjectRe: MTU and 2.4.x kernel

    Yes, default configuration is not allowed to advertise mss<536.
    The limit is controlled via /proc/sys/net/ipv4/route/min_adv_mss,
    you can change it to 256.

    Default of 536 is sadistic (and apaprently will be changed eventually
    to stop tears of poor people whose providers not only supply them
    with bogus mtu values sort of 552 or even 296, but also jailed them
    to some proxy or masquearding domain), but it is still right: IP
    with mtu lower 576 is not full functional.
