CRYPTO_ENGINE: locally-sourced pkt w/DF bit set is too big,ip->tl=1420

Good morning all,

I have set up a Cisco EZVPN between a Head-end Router and a Remote router and everything is working just fine except that when I console in the Remote router is get the following error:

% CRYPTO_ENGINE: locally-sourced pkt w/DF bit set is too big,ip->tl=1420

I have another EZVPN Remote router setup to the same head-end EZVPN Server and this doesn’t get the error although apart from the difference in Cisco hardware between the two Remote routers they are identical in config.

The router I have working is a Cisco 1811 running over Vodafone 3G network
The router I have working but have the error on is a Cisco 881W running over the Vodafone 3G network

Router is in good coverage area for 3G and uses IPsec over a GRE Tunnel to communicate directly with the head-end EZVPN Router which is a Cisco 2800 series

Any help with this would be much appreciated

Many thanks
David

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Does this message have a MTU value after the tl=1420?  If not I would start by lowering the MTU and MSS value on the tunnel interface until you no longer receive this message. I would start with setting the MTU to 1320 and the MMS value to 1240.

Had to read up on quite a bit before determining if the answer provided was feasible and it was.
