Title: IPv6 seems ok: ping ok, but TCP fails
Post by: Celotoise on July 29, 2019, 10:51:50 PM
Hi,

I'm using a draytek 2925.

The he tunnel ipv6 seems ok : ping both ways are working.

But web TCP sessions fails.

Any help for fix or troubleshooting  is welcome.

Sounds like an MTU mismatch

tested multiple IPV6 MTU (1300,1442,1472..) on the windows 10  : no success

Any possibility to monitor or some stat on the traffic from HE point a view ?

More info:

from google chrome: http ok but when switching to https timeout during the tls session

Current MTU on HE is 1460

Hello,
this is a thing that made me struggling for many hours. Finally, I discovered this is a quite well-known Broadcom chipset issue:

If you have full control of your router, you can issue those commands to disable flow cache:

fcctl disable
fcctl config --mcast 0

Maybe your router has some GUI options to toggle those settings, too.
