Building a reputation

Documentation Digest is very helpful in tracking information.
So I subscribe to "Label: Documentation Digest". But I don't receive any notification by email.
Does subscribing to the "Label" not work?

I will send you a DM to troubleshoot this. You'll find DMs in the envelope icon in the upper right-hand corner of the navigation bar (see screenshot).



Kind of a big deal

I'm just looking over: 

"If your packet is traversing over Auto VPN, you will need to account for up to 69 bytes of overhead when determining MTU size (the overhead size will vary depending on the packet size)."


I note there has been a recent change for AutoVPN overhead in 18.107.6.

"AutoVPN transmissions between peers which are running firmware versions 18.1 and later will consume an additional 4 bytes of overhead, totaling up to 68 bytes."


I wonder if the 69 bytes in the trouble shooting document is still correct.

It is.  

Opened a ticket 1 week ago. The response was something like  : I can't tell you in what circumstances it will use 69 bytes. Sometimes it is 62,63,64,68 or 69 bytes.  Even us we have no clue.

#rant of the day.


Reason #2391 why I hate MXs. 


The engineer that handled your case passed along feedback asking us to clarify this behavior. We have it in our queue and will engage with our product team to see if we can get something a little more informative documented.

Can't wait ! Because frankly I didn't get any from that case
