Kernel 2.6.7 uses different network parameters than kernel 2.6.6.
For example, window scaling is turned on in 2.6.7 (but it was off
on 2.6.6). This causes problems with most firewalls. Execute the
following command with root privileges, that should "fix" the
networking problem for all new connections:
sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_default_win_scale=0
Put this in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file or put
"net.ipv4.tcp_default_win_scale = 0" directly into
/etc/sysctl.conf (which is the better way, but be careful
that it doesn't get overwritten by package updates).
Actually the Linux kernel is fine, the problem is in the firewalls
and/or their configuration. If anybody knows how to configure a
Cisco (with and without inspection) to work with window scaling,
I'd be happy about some hints.
