Subject: [BUG/PATCH] ppp_mppe discards 50% of packets from some servers

[BUG] ppp_mppe discards 50% of packets from some servers

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:

When I connect to a server using MPPE, I receive about every other
packet with the FLUSHED bit turned off. These packets are dropped by
ppp_mppe.c just like the SPEC says they should be. I am not able to
maintain tcp connections through the VPN with these packets being discarded.

I found a patch discussed here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1095189

When I stop dropping those packets (by making this change to the driver;
see patch at end), the problem went away.

When I connect to a different server, I do not have this problem.

WhenI connect using Windows XP or Windows 7 clients, I do not have any
packet loss on either server, though I have not confirmed whether every
other packet still has the FLUSHED bit turned off.

I could see the symptom clearly by pinging a machine on the VPN. Every
other ping packet is lost with the old driver. Once I installed the new
driver, every ping is responded correctly.

I do not know any details about the two servers (one that works and one
that doesn't) except both are managed by the same mega-company but in
different countries (China and Czech).

[4.] Kernel information
[4.1.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):
Linux version 3.0.0-14-generic (buildd@...spice) (gcc version 4.6.1

[4.2.] Kernel .config file:
*shrug*

[5.] Most recent kernel version which did not have the bug:

I have never seen a version able to connect to the failing server reliably.

[6.] Output of Oops.. message (if applicable) with symbolic information
     resolved (see Documentation/oops-tracing.txt)

N/A


[7.] A small shell script or example program which triggers the
     problem (if possible)

$ sudo pon server2
$ ping some-machine.server2
...
^C
20 packets transmitted, 10 received, 50% packet loss

Subject: [PATCH] ppp_mppe: Don't discard non-FLUSHED-bit packets

In mppe_decompress, packets without the FLUSHED bit set
are discarded.  Some servers clear this bit on every other
packet and so streams are impossible to maintain.

Fix this by keeping these packets with the FLUSHED bit set.

This may turn out to be the wrong way to fix this, but it
has worked for me so far.  I only connect to three servers,
though.
