Hi,

I tried this.  I also tried:

------------------------------------
fragment 1400
mssfix
------------------------------------

and 

------------------------------------
fragment 1300
mssfix
------------------------------------

and

------------------------------------
fragment 1200
mssfix
------------------------------------

and

------------------------------------
fragment 1420
mssfix
------------------------------------

and

------------------------------------
mssfix
------------------------------------

None made any difference.  It still hangs after just a few minutes of 
activity.

I also tried tcp, but could not get a connection with tcp.  Perhaps one of the 
routers is preventing the TCP connection.  Haven't worked that out yet.

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

David.
