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

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

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.
