RE: [Fedora-xen] scp in FC6 + Xen gets stuck in "stalled" stage



Yes . That did it. I am able to copy files using scp.

Why does an MTU issue come up in this scenario ? 

Thanks

Looks more like an MTU isuse. Try using clamping:

iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j TCPMSS
--clamp-mss-to-pmtu

Otherwise, try pinging with different size packets until it fails, and
then use
the last successful packet size (eg 1440) to:

iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j TCPMSS --set-mss
1440
