secure sites slow to load through VPN

Recommended Posts

Greetings -


I am having  slow page loads for Https, placing an Amazon order and various user forums. Http is working just fine.


Setup: Macintosh OS X, El Capitan, Google Chrome browser, Eddie v 2.10; SSL Tunnel port 443


I have read issues with Safari DNS prefetch and switched to Chrome to test. Only extensions are Adblock Plus and Disconnect. DNS is confirmed at (AirVPN). Various speed tests confirm that things are humming along.


I have also tired various MTU settings on my router from 1500 down and nothing seems to help. 


This issue is even more noticeable on an iPad running OpenVPN UDP, 443. Chrome or Safari.  

Any ideas to try next?

Can you try the default UDP/443 connection?

An SSL tunnel is more CPU intensive, and a device like iPad may slow things down.

An SSL tunnel for VPN and another SSL session on top of that combined, on a mobile

cannot be expected to work as fast as on a PC, for example.
