Don't bother reading this rant below unless you want technical details, but that administrator misconfigured his VPN to the point where OVPN underperformed by four times what it should have been.Its been ages since I played around with networking at a low-level (we're talking teenage years, when ARIN didn't charge for netblocks, and Cisco 7206VXR's could hold the entire internet BGP table in it), but I'll give it a go.1) It's not a fair comparison to begin with since OpenVPN is effectively maintaining a lot more information as it's acting as either a) as is in his configuration, a Layer 3 router, there's bound to be more overhead as it's maintaining a lot more information than a single Point-to-Point SSH connection; he should be using Bridged Mode and routing via a virtual switch at L2 instead. He sort of acknowledged this by making an appeal to the OSI layer, but then didn't check to see if there was a way to disable the full-routing functionality and move down to switching
iVPN's Windows and OSX clients have the best leak protection that I've seen. I have not managed to make them leak.Edit: I do freelance for them, by the way.
I got an immediate response from an engineer which addressed my complaint in detail (poor port forwarding setup), and even gave me a timeline for when they were going to fix it. And they did fix it! The port forwarding is great, now.Also, since this does matter a lot: I have a 100 Mbps connection, and I get between 50-80 Mbps through almost all of their servers, barring understandably slow countries like Hong Kong.Oh, also, they have multihop, and you select your own entry and exit server from among their pool
