Re: RPi4 BCM2711 and ARMv8 Crypto Extensions?

Could this be verified please as both RockPi4 (RockChip 3399) and OrangePi (H6) do have AES enabled. Would be such a pity if RPi4 does not have this enabled, which would "degrade" it to a nice kodi box but not for eg VPN ...

Hardware RNG on RPi2

Hi, Trying to find out if the bcm2835-rng module is needed to enable rng-tools daemon to feed the random data from the hardware RNG to the kernel entropy pool at /dev/random. Had following in mind after installing rng-tools: vi /etc/default/rng-tools # remove the # at the start of the line, thus HRN...

Re: oVPN 2.4 and RPiZ half o/t performance comparing to RPi2

hi - I agree rgd cpu power, forgot to mention both devices use the performance governor and RPi2 is " overclocked " to 1000MHz. However in this case " ovpn " utilises openSSL and if " AES-256-CBC " is being used that's single threading regardless of what you have elsewhereone. Might be worth conside...

oVPN 2.4 and RPiZ half o/t performance comparing to RPi2

Hi - I like to have a permanent VPN connection between my two homes. That is no longer an issue as I have openvpn 2.4.2 set up between two AESNI compatible boards and speeds are as expected, max bandwidth ( upload 30Mbit/s limit and download 100Mbit/s ) is used. Also I managed to get satisfactory re...

Re: HLF1081A USB-OTG to LAN

that is a pity, though 25Mbit should be fine in my case. Therefore I tested a 2nd vpn, which is identical configured as the RPiZ but running on a RPi2. That shows indeed the results as expected ( note my upload speed is max 27.0Mbit/s ): iperf -c 192.168.20.11 -t30 -P1 ------------------------------...

hmm where is that documented it has a USB1 interface as it is sold as USB2? Or you mean the Linux driver has only support for 10Mbit ?

Hi - Thanks for your reply . Please note this one has a Micro USB 2.0 to Ethernet RJ45 Network LAN Adapter which I like to connect directly ( thus without USB to micro-USB converter ) to my PiZERO. Anyway ASIX should be good too! thanks again
