I would like to know the recommened MSS value settings in Cisco ASA 5510.
I am using Cisco ASA 5510 to connect to internet & NATing is enabled to it.

I am getting the following alerts in the Cisco ASA. Default MSS is configured in the Cisco ASA

%ASA-4-419001: Dropping TCP packet from outside:1.1.1.1/80 to inside:2.2.2.2/59924, reason: MSS exceeded, MSS 1380, data 1460

Would like to know what is the recommended MSS settings to be configured so that the packets are not rejected.

Hi

Here's a Cisco document that explains the problem and has a workaround:

I'm checking a couple of other solutions.  I'll be back.

And ..

I've been reading this:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk870/tk877/tk880/technologies_tech_note09186a008011a218.shtml

and am wondering if the parameter needs to be adjusted in Windows?  

Check it out and see what you think?

Hi

It looks like the recommended size is 1452.  There is an explanation in the usage guidelines for the command in this doc:

Hope this all helps the problem you are seeing.
