Summary: Novell VPN configured with NM set's additional (wrong)
host route for VPN Gateway
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Network
AssignedTo: bili@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: deckel@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---


When starting the VPN connection via NM (KDE4 in this case), the following
routes appear:

195.92.40.66 via 149.44.171.254 dev wlan0 proto static
195.92.40.66 via 149.44.171.254 dev wlan0 mtu 1436 advmss 1396

195.92.40.66 is the VPN gateway.
The second route is correct as it contains the mtu and mss settings to
workaround the lower MTU behind DSL connections.
This route is also setup when connecting via nvpn or vpnlogin.

The first route is wrong as it doesn't contains the mtu and mss settings.
I think that because of this route, sometimes connections through the tunnel
get stalled because of MTU issues.
When the first route gets manually removed after the vpn login, these MTU
issues don't appear.
AFAIS this route is not setup by the ipalias script but is setup via NM.
