This article explains recommended MTU settings for a FortiWeb VM in Azure to prevent session dropping.
|Scope||FortiWeb VMs in Azure.|
In some rare circumstances, sessions between a real server and a FortiWeb VM in Azure can be dropped.
Once the TCP connection is established between FortiWeb and the real server (such as SYN, SYN/ACK, ACK), a TCP reset is received from the server. The causes of this reset are unpredictable and some connections may continue to work correctly in spite of it.
According to Azure, it's recommended to set the MTU to 1,400. Run the following command in FortiWeb:
# config system interface
edit interface <index>
set mtu 1400
