Thank you for your answer.

I have added the 'pass in for icmp' rule to the firewall (pass out did already 
exist). There was a noticable improvement, the /usr dump came much further 
than before. But at about 80% there was the timeout again.

I tried lowering the MTU value at the server side, but nearly all other 
network traffic stopped working, so that is not the way to go.

Kind regards,
