Speed issue



  • Im having a setup with one road warrior to our office.  He is reporting some speed problems. Found in the OpenVPN log that its seems that he is logging in and out all the time, or is this normal. Something to have with the speed problem? I have tested the speed from my home with no problems and he have the same dowload/upload speed (or even faster).

  • I don't normally see that.  How are the OpenVPN server and client configured?



  • Protocol: UDP
    Local port: 1194
    Adress pool: 192.168.254.0/24
    Local network: 192.168.123.0/24
    Cryptography: BF-CBC (128-bit)
    Authentication method: PKI
    DHCP-Opt.: DNS-Server: 192.168.123.10
    DHCP-Opt.: WINS-Server: 192.168.123.10
    LZO compression: ticked

    All other options is unticked.

    Here is the client:

    client
    dev tun
    proto udp
    remote office.com 1194
    ping 10
    resolv-retry infinite
    nobind
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    ca ca.crt
    cert user1.crt
    key user1.key
    ns-cert-type server
    comp-lzo
    pull
    verb 3

    offtopic (or maybe ontopic): What should the "DHCP-Opt.: NetBIOS node type" be in my configuration? Yes im using NetBIOS.



  • Seems ok, certainly not worlds apart from my own config which does work fine.

    It would be good to check:

    1. Is it only this person
    2. Is it only that remote location

    as it's probably either networking related or a problem with that individual client.
