[SOLVED] Howto: Optimize AirVPN for Gigabit Win10

Recommended Posts

How many torrents are doing what (seeding/downloading)? What are your connection settings? Client?
Are you by any chance using a rotating drive for storage?

 Just one torrent seeding at less than 100kb/s really not much load, settings and drive is irrelevant as it is working normally without vpn.
There is definitely at some level a protocol or flow analysis going on that throttles the whole vpn connection. After the torrent application is closed the throttling stays for like 1-2 minutes and then everything is back to normal.

That's what i thought and can confirm in my experience with your services.
As it's clearly Vodafone that is applying the throttle to UDP443 and the only way to circumvent that is TCP:

@Staff:
Since forever I've seen a TCP 443 speed cap at around 120mbps, is this applied from your side or my ISP as well?
If it's from your side: Is there a chance to bump the TCP connection from the current 120 to about 200ish mbps if the server is not loaded?

Hello!

No, we don't throttle/cap anything.

Kind regards

I could confirm with SSL and a different VPN, the limitations have been put in place by Vodafone Germany.

AirVPN is awesome as expected and techsupport at Vodafone is straight up lying (or doesn't know the truth).

Oh, this I can partly confirm. Performance of VPN on DOCSIS lines of Vodafone Kabel Deutschland is.. interesting. But downloads always worked splendidly, it's the upload that drove me nuts.

I know I'm a little late to the party, but one thing I would recommend is to install Hummingbird and select 'Use Hummingbird if available' in Eddie. For me, it speeds things up a good couple hundred mbps.

EDIT: Nvm. Didn't know it was Linux only. My bad.

Linux and macOS, anyway.

Gigabit connection here, from Canada. I'm able to reach more than 600Mbps. Here is how:

- wintun and OpenVPN 2.5
- ChaCha20 server
- Ethernet connection

I'm very happy with the speed after a lot of testing.

Hi I've tried chacha20 and didn't get an improvement, this said, the closest chaCHa20 server is about twice as far away as the closest other server.
