Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

Because then your results only have meaning for yourself. Which is fine, but then don’t publish them as anything else but anecdotal data. I'm sorry I don't agree that these results would only have meaning for myself. These results should have meaning for anyone who wishes to use a Pi 4 to connect t...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

Please let me know if you need further info on this test. What are the versions of speedtest-cli on each Linux machines (speedtest-cli --version). I doubt it would make that much of a difference, but try installing the latest speedtest-cli using pip: sudo apt-get remove speedtest-cli hash -r sudo p...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

Well if the type of cipher doesn’t matter on a thread claiming to offer VPN performance [RESULTS] I guess there is nothing more to say. Also I believe throughput should be tested in a repeatable environment, ie on an Ethernet LAN and not directly over Internet. Whatever. Yes, cipher used is AES-256...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

I have done the very same tests now with a Udoo x86 board, with the latest Ubuntu. https://www.udoo.org/udoo-x86/ Speedtest without VPN connection: 97 Mb/s Speedtest with VPN connection: 96 Mb/s This rules out that the low speed seen with the Raspberry boards could be due to Linux and/or with the pr...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

Yes, all tests with wired ethernet. I compared the windows openvpn config from my provider vs the one for linux, the only major difference was the sndbuf and rcvbuf, they were much bigger on the windows config. I tried those higher values on the linux config, it didn't improve the speeds. I'm not su...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

On the Pi 3B+, load is usually high on the core that is executing openvpn, it reaches about 95%, it could remain stable at 85%+ on downloads which take more time than speedtest. On the Pi 4B, I observed it reaching between 60%-70% on one core, that's why I mentioned the load seemed fine. Unfortunate...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

It might be worth repeating that speedtest essentially tests your ISP network: how well you are connected to it, how well it is connected to the rest of the world. The test, AFAIK, downloads/uploads data from files. In the case of a Pi running off an SD, performance would then normally hover around...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

On my Windows PC I get 100 mbit/s, which is the max I have at home. Thus it is not a limit on the VPN provider. Tested with same VPN provider, connected to the same vpn server and same UDP protocol and port, using their windows app (which is an electron app that runs openvpn in the background). Same...

Re: Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

A nice colleage of mine lent me a Pi 4B 2G Ram, and we tested OpenVPN with it. Internet connection used for testing: ~1Gb/s down (Pi 4B connected to the router via eth0). Download speed test results using "speedtest-cli": * No vpn: ~550 Mb/s * With vpn: ~60 Mb/s I can only observe that the Pi 4B doe...

Pi 4B: question on OpenVPN performance or speed [RESULTS]

Hello everyone, I have a 100/10 mbit internet connection. I'm currently using a Pi 3B+, connected to a local VPN provider using OpenVPN . The speeds I'm getting with "speedtest-cli" are: Download: 50 to 60 mbit/s Upload: 10 mbit/s When disconeected from the VPN provider I'm getting the full 100 mbit...

Re: Unable to get an IP address from AP (Stretch)

Per: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/access-point.md The configuration to get a static ip on wlan0 is: interface wlan0 static ip_address=192.168.4.1/24 nohook wpa_supplicant I think you are missing the "nohook" directive. I had the same issue, that directive fixed it...
