compression on Openvpn



  • I have pfsense version 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 and pfsense version 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1. What kind of Openvpn compression, if any, on server and client, should I use. Server is 2.4.4 and client is 2.3.4. I don't understand compression settings and they are usually set as default settings.



  • It might be best for you to leave them at their defaults unless you have a specific reason for changing them. Some say that compression isn't required at all. This was an interesting read that talks a lot about compression and its effects:
