Hi. I have been using Zerotier (ZT) v1.6.6 on RouterOS 7.11 for the past few days and i have a speed problem. I use the Hap ac3 as a ZT peer. I think it's better to introduce my configuration first, and then ask for suggestions:
-my ZT network is 172.24.0.0/16 and managed on zerotier central
-my home LAN is 10.0.0.0/16
-the hap ac3 has a LAN ip of 10.0.0.1 and a ZT ip which is 172.24.0.1
-i have a synology NAS sitting behind the hap ac3 with an ip of 10.0.0.10
-i have a static route on the ZT central controller in order to access devices behind the hap ac3. for now, i am only accessing the NAS. the static route is: dst 10.0.0.0/24 via 172.24.0.1 (hap ac3 ZT ip)
-i configured the hap ac3 ZT peer according to this tutorial: https://help.mikrotik.com/docs/display/ROS/ZeroTier
and made sure to add the firewall rules.
-my home ISP speed is 1000mbit/s down, 50mbit/s up
, i can properly ping and access the router and the NAS using their LAN IPs (10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.10), since the static route was configured on zerotier central and the firewall rules added
to the hap ac3 firewall.
-no further configuration has been done on the home lan.
-accessing the home LAN remotely is done using a speed of approx 40mbps down, 5mbps up
remotely, when I try to transfer files, using WebDav or via http/https from or to the NAS, the speed is way low. I get upload speeds of 300kbps and download speeds of 900kbps, which is nowhere near the speeds i get when i do port forward on the hap ac3 and access my NAS without a tunnel like zerotier. for comparison, port forward method delivers a download speed of 3.5-4Mbps.
The cpu load of hap ac3, when transfering files is 20-30%, avg 25%, but i dont think this explains the slow download speed.
i checked the links between peers(pc-hap ac3) on the zerotier central and using the zerotier-cli on windows, they show a direct(non relayed) connection, and the respective public IPs are also showing up properly. ping times also give away a direct link. Any suggestions on improving my speeds would be appreciated.
