SSL connection does not timeout #130
Today my internet provider's upstream misconfigured a router during an upgrade. In short, until they fix it I've needed to set my router's MTU to a lower value.
Incorrect MTU settings have often meant that some connections fail to complete, in my experience this has most often been seen with ssl connections (whether https or irc)
This happenned around 23:10Z and when I reattached my screen around 08:00Z irssi had been attempting to reconnect, but had only tried every couple of hours. As far as I can tell, all of my (re)connect timeouts are set to 5 minutes. Not 2 hours. As per the log below, the connection was listed as
After "fixing" the MTU, /disconnect'ing & /reconnect'ing irssi connected fine.

Here's what I think happens in this case, take it with a grain of salt.
Ok, we've also got an easy way to test this :) just open
