This problem exist in 5.x and 6.x implementations i wrote the email to luiggi for this problem
but no answer yet , there is a problem with fragmented traffic that going throut pipes,
dummynet whithout a problem change the ids of the framents and with this prevent
reassembling of the fragments , this is true not only for icmp udp icmp its true for all ip traffic.

The problem comes here: if I 'ping' between these two machines, everything is fine, but if I 'ping' with a packet size of, ie, 2000, no packets arrive at the receiver. Does it have to do with fragmented packets? Do I have to include any other rule for dealing with fragments?

Does this not effectively kill all frags? Are your unreceived packets showing up in the log? And if not, are you sure that it's BSD4 that's losing them, and not ubuntu3?
Here's how my firewall handles frags:
# Allow IP fragments to pass through /sbin/ipfw add pass all from any to any frag
You may also want to set up something similar to handle ICMP.
I've not used dummynet pipes in ages, I wonder if setting a larger queue would help with my disconnect problems, or whether I really do just need to give up and reinstall the entire OS.
Thank you, you're right, but adding something like 'pass all from any to any frag' does not put the IICMP packets through the dummynet pipe. I am not specially interested in 'ping's, but it happens the same for UDP traffic...
The problem is that, if I put ICMP/UDP/etc traffic through a pipe, it doesn't work when packets are fragmented. And letting fragments out of the pipe does not improve things...
Any idea? Thanks.
