Regarding the MTU I just went to the server (using remote desktop) and changed (had to add it) the MTU setting on the NIC to 1300 (which is a value that makes PPTP VPN connections work such that remote desktop is OK. Restarted the server and then tested it with status -v, but no change. Then I reduced it to 1100 but then I thought I detected a worsening of the symptoms (no data at all) so I changed it back to 1300. PMTU is something I don't even have a clue as to what it is.... But now I am fingering on stuff I don't know anything about, really... >Compression would make this worse since it builds up a chunk of data >before sending it, rather than sending line by line. Then it is at least a cause behind it. Strange though. What can I do next (the Wireshark suggestion is tried but I don't really understand what to do with it)?
