10.4: A fix for connectivity issues with Apple's servers
Authored by: bugmenot on May 16, '07 07:55:03PM
I also had this problem with my OpenBSD router about a year ago, and have used this hint's fix since then. I recently tried allowing my router to reassemble tcp again, and software update works now! Either Apple or OpenBSD must have fixed something.

This was a great hint and helped me for a long time, but is no longer necessary. My line in pf.conf is now:

scrub on $ext_if random-id reassemble tcp max-mss 1452
The random-id is for security, the max-mss is because i use PPPoE.
