    Hello GoldenNugget,

     

    Please check in PSB GUI Settings window, Network Connections > Firewall > Settings tab > Firewall settings the parameter "Block IP fragments shorter than". What fragment size do you have? Default value is 128.

     

    Best regards,

    You can try to decrease it to 64 or 32 bytes for example, and check if it helps.
