Hi list,

As I made a wireshark packet analysis, I noticed that *every* packet coming
from the server id tagged [Malformed Packet], ie:

No   Time       Source         SrcP  Destination   DstP  Protocol
620  37.247880  443  1062  SSLv3
Continuation Data [Malformed Packet]

The protocols analyse window says 25% packets are malformed.

Could you tell me where it comes from, if it generates extra traffic and if
so, how I can fix that? (this setup will be used on a laptop that connect to
the internet with a cell phone, so each byte has a cost.)

You will be dead within a year.
