Here is more explaination on "Set MTU" on VPN Client for your reference:

Basically it is only needed when you are troubleshooting issue with performance as default MTU on internet devices is typically 1500, and if the VPN Client is sending bigger file than 1500, then it would cause fragmentation which could possibly be blocked along the path, and/or taking the server end sometime to reconstruct the fragmented vpn packets.

However, in normal circumstance, the "Set MTU" setting should not be interfere.
