sporadic connection problems to specific websites
« on: August 05, 2011, 12:25:30 PM »

I have sporadic problems connecting to a couple of Dreamhost IPv6 websites through a couple of HE tunnels.
Specifically, large packets returning from Dreamhost's server don't make it, and the browser hangs, waiting for data. Here are two traces for comparison:

The browsing computer is on a LAN of MTU 1500. The tunnel, however, has a MTU of 1472. I expect PMTUD to handle this transparently, but I think that's what's failing.

Can I assume that the other end of my HE tunnel sends back appropriate ICMP errors for oversize packets?
