I'm new to pfsense.
I have an openvpn server running on the 2.3 RC.
How can I set it to take advantage of AES-NI on my i3 and how can I verify that it is using it?
Should I change any other settings to help from a hardware/CPU perspective?
as there are no GCM cyphers available in the current implementation of openvpn, the performance gain is minimal. its confirmed to be in openvpn-2.4, no clue when that will be released.
openvpn uses the openssl library, that library automagically uses aes-ni if available.
