Well, the cisco vpn client is connected, i can ping my far end and can download/upload file less than 6MB. Whenever I try to download files larger than 6MB, download start but it ends up with the error network path no longer, while the vpn connection is quite fine. This is an interesting case..

I know there are some mss/mtu tweaks which i already have tried, our remote end far away there are 15 to 20 hops ...where i should make mss/mtu changes?

What do you suggest, what could be wrong?

First you can get the mtu size my pinging the other end PC from your source PC. Use the ping ipaddr -t -l 1500 -f, keep decreasing the value till you get a ping response. I guess from your post you must have done this. Now apply the tcp adj-mss commands on the interface where you begin your tunnel and also where the tunnel is ended.

This should probably solve your problem
