Re: Speed difference using widget and setting up router as client

Thanks for putting some hard numbers on what kind of clock speeds I'll need to handle offloading the workload. Unfrotunately NUC form factor is out since they're wifi. I'm very interested in hearing how far you're able to go with the Ras Pi 2. I have the RT-AC68U, which is Asus' direct competitor to...

Re: cryptostorm: zero tolerance policy implemented

I think many users, myself included, are seeing 50mbps caps not necessarily due to the node's maximum throughput but due to the current state of OpenVPN and more so as a result of the single threaded intensive calculations necessary to transfer large amounts of data encrypted with stronger ciphers. ...

Re: Speed difference using widget and setting up router as client

This appears to be a direct result of the ciphers used for encryption. Particularly the 256-bit requirements for both TLS and standard transport. I was able to improve speed by 50% by targeting affinity for the openvpn process to run on the second core while the first handles all the rest of the rou...

Re: Asus router connection

Tweaked the conflig slightly, turns out "comp-lzo no" does work. "client" also does, but not "dev tun". Also added stuff at the end not to echo out to the syslog: client resolv-retry 16 nobind float txqueuelen 686 remote linux-montreal.cryptostorm.net 443 udp sndbuf siz...

Re: Speed difference using widget and setting up router as client

Sorting "top" by CPU usage I see that the vpn client jumps to 20-25% when there's heavy transfer. Probably an issue with capping out a single thread. Bummer.

Speed difference using widget and setting up router as client

I have an RT-AC68U which is practically as god as consumer grade routers get. Regardless of this when I set up the router to act as an openvpn client I get speeds of about 10-15mbps tops, in comparison to 45-50 when using the widget on the desktop. Is there a magic setting I'm missing? I have 300mbp...
