6.1. Adjusting the MTU Setting

You can use Oracle Virtual Desktop Client to connect to your server over a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN is typically used to provide secure access to a company's network to people from outside the network, such as employees working from home. See your administrator if you need help to configure your computer for connecting over a VPN.

If you are experiencing problems when using Oracle Virtual Desktop Client over a VPN, you might need to decrease the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) setting on the Network tab to allow space for Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) headers.

Alternatively, you can enable the MTU Auto Detect option on the Network tab. Oracle Virtual Desktop Client then detects the optimum MTU setting for your connection automatically. If network conditions change during a session, the MTU setting is adjusted dynamically.

When you enable the MTU Auto Detect setting, any manual MTU settings made using the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) field are ignored.

Contact your administrator if you need advice on the required MTU setting for your company's VPN.
