Logmein and Ubuntu Problem Fix

When I tried and login to logmein.com from Ubuntu I get an error that can’t load page. It works fine in XP on the same network. If I was running IE or Firefox in VirtualBox it still would not work for me. It seems to be caused by the MTU value under Ubuntu.

I found the following on Ubuntu Forums but for mine to work I had to lower my MTU even lower for it to work.

So I had to use the following in a terminal window:

sudo ifconfig eth0 mtu 1460

Now this only works until you restart you PC.

If you have a static IP you can use the following:

sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
add the following line to the eth0 configuration info
MTU 1460

For DHCP you will have to do something different.
