Re: ssh problem
I've read all the responses to this email, but it is still unclear to me if described behavior could be the result of a damaged ethernet cable. The logic would be that smaller packets have higher chances of getting through, both on initial send event and when re-sending non-ACKed packets. I could be totally wrong here, so that is why I'm asking.
I had recently deteriorating link quality to my server, which manifested itself as rising (on the scale of dozens of hours) percentage of lost packets when running mtr or ping from my server to some external server. This had finally led to complete loss of connectivity. I did get higher link reliability by decreasing link speed to 10MBps, I haven't tried MTU though. Link was fixed by tech support doing something either to the patch-panel or a patch-cord between the server and patch-panel.
