[lvs-users] IPVS stops tunneling with ipip on SSL traffic causing session failures

Thank you for the suggestion.

We didn't have the netfilter module loaded at all so I don't think it
would have having any impact. However I loaded it and set this setting
and it didn't change the behavior.
The ip_conntrack_tcp_be_liberal setting wasn't available on our kernel
version looks like I can't find a module to load to enable that.

We did find something interesting. If we add additional headers to the
working http request we can make it fail.

WORKS: curl -H "X:1"
FAILS:  curl -H "X:12"

190 bytes works, 191 bytes fails with the failure to tunnel problem.
