Has this been changed? SSH used to work fine on my old machine. My local
mtu and server mtu are higher than required. Therefore the only thing I
could expect would be a lower mtu on the vpn. Has this changed in recent
versions. As previously I was using OSX I expect the OpenSSH version was
older. Still strange to me that it worked before and not now. I will
test tomorrow to see if connecting on the actual network solves the issue.
