[Olsr-users] Too big packets | > 1420 Bytes!

I am probably not the best person to answer this but from my understanding,
OLSRd uses MTU of the interface to decide packet size. The interface
created by VPN tunnel should be setting proper MTU.
Could you post your OLSRd config file as well as the version of OLSRd you
