It works almost with every browser and every operative system...
But, in the latest times, when I try to connect at the main page the browser show me this awful error: " The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading"
In the beginning I thought that was a so successful service, that so much clients have stunned the server.
To day a vague feeling that could be a different kind of problem, so I begun a search and...
Well, I think there is a real problem with the TCP/IP stack.
I think you can try different values since you found the correct one.
Incredible. For what I could discover now, the problem seems to affect every kind of browsers (Firefox/Konqueror/IE) in conjunction with the MTU parameter. Even if you try wget the https://secure.logmein.com/home.asp page the error appears.
To correct you need to change the MTU parameter at least into your ADSL modem, changing it from 1500 (my default value) to 1450.
