I couldn't get ttcp or iperf on the LAN only to exhibit this problem.
From a discussion on one of the FreeBSD mailing lists this seems to be
an issue with re(4) TX checksum hardware offloading.
Interesting, I didn't have this problem on my 8169S(PCI) and it seems
to only plague PCIe devices. Can you help me to do a test?
on non-re(4) side:
tcpdump -nv -i <ifcace>
on your re(4) side:
ping -n -c 1 -s 1512 <other-side>
ping -n -c 10 -s 33 <other-side>
Give me the output of the tcpdump. Thanks
