Pimp my AirVPN connection - log file included

Recommended Posts

Disclaimer: "Pimp my.." is a reference to a once popular MTV show which centered on individuals submitting their vehicles with the goal of getting them optimized/upgraded.  I'm not referring to sexual exploitation/slavery/trafficking or anything of the like.

 

In the same spirit as that MTV show, I'm submitting my AirVPN log file to the kind folks of this community in case there is something in it which implies room for improvement.  I have a 100 Mbps Comcast connection, a Docsis 3 modem (SB6141), an 802.11ac router (Asus AC68U) and my primary client is a MacBook with a 802.11 ac wireless adapter.  I'm using the SSL port because it seems Comcast throttles the UDP ports on my connection.

Anyhow, thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have to improve my vpn speeds.

Hello!

 

. 2015.06.15 20:17:21 - OpenVPN > Socket Buffers: R=[131072->65536] S=[131072->524288]

 

While the OpenVPN send buffer is appropriate for your line (even too big), the receive buffer could be too small for a 100 Mbit/s line, try to force it to 131072 bytes (currently OpenVPN shrinks it to 65536 bytes, we see from the logs).

 

In Eddie 2.10.1 Experimental you can set buffers size in "AirVPN" -> "Preferences" -> "Advanced" -> "General", and anyway Eddie 2.10.1 sets them to 131072 bytes by default.

 

In Eddie versions older than 2.10.1 you can set buffers size with the OpenVPN directives "sndbuf" and "rcvbuf". In your case:

rcvbuf 131072

 

Put the above line in the "Custom" field that you can see in "AirVPN" -> "Preferences" -> "Advanced" -> "OVPN Directives".

 

On Comcast traffic shaping can be intermittent (it is applied at their discretion even according to customer behavior, see https://airvpn.org/topic/14078-slow-download-speed-hezepersei-fremontca-servers/page-2?do=findComment&comment=27026 ), so your protocol choice could be correct, but you can also test UDP, it's worth a try.

 

Kind regards

What the Staff said

 

If the speeds are still aren't what they should be - try not using wifi and don't be afraid to server hop. Good routing to the server is often more important than the distance from the server.
