Alix & site to site VPN?



  • Does anyone know if a 500MHz AMD Geode (LX800) will have enough processing power to handle being an OpenVPN client for three-five people?  I have a satellite office that I want to send an enclosed unit to, but don't want to buy it, configure it, ship it off, only to find out that it doesn't have enough processing power to do the job…



  • Depends on how much traffic you want to push and how fast the connection is.
    (the number of clients is kind of irrelevant)



  • Their internet connection is limited to ~64KB/s upstream, and they will not be using the VPN constantly - only to grab files they need to work on, and then save back when done.

    I just setup my alix.2c3 (LX800) and I'm able to push about 15Mbit over an OpenVPN tunnel.
