Iptables option clamp-mss-to-pmtu


I have a Wp7601 I am trying to use the clamp-mss-to-pmtu option in iptables, but it doesn’t work and appears to not be in the build. But when I build the kernel, the code is there, but must be somehow removed in the “minimal” build that it does. Also, a discrepancy I noticed is the code refers to version 1.6.0, but when I do iptables --version, I get 1.4.0. Can anyone point me to where to put that back in and why the discrepancy?



Hi, could you let us know the ATI3 and ATI8 response of your WP7601 so we know what FW and legato versions you are running?




Thanks for responding.

May need to add below in Yocto recipes:

IMAGE_INSTALL += “kernel-module-xt-tcpmss”


Well, that yielded the following message:
ERROR: ParseError at /home/mangoh/Documents/Repository/yocto/meta-swi-extras/meta-swi-mdm9x28/recipes/images/mdm9x28-sierra-image.inc:16: unparsed line: ‘IMAGE_INSTALL += “kernel-module-xt-tcpmss”’

I noticed that the “mangle” package was also removed from this build, so I added it back in, but then I get:

  • opkg_prepare_url_for_install: Couldn’t find anything to satisfy ‘kernel-module-iptable-mangle’.

There’s obviously something more that needs to be done to connect the dots.


The “unparsed line” error was because I copy and pasted the line above. The quotes were incorrect. But even with them corrected, I get the same kind of error as I did with the mangle library.

The interesting thing is that the modules are on the device. But not “installed”. And putting them in the installer.inc file, causes an error saying these aren’t compatible with the MACHINE.
