I am trying to set up a VPN that has a fast download speed. The server I have is a linux server and from there I can download 2 megabytes a second.
At home I can also download with 2 megabytes a second. All the downloads I do are from the same source, no different server.
Now I have set up a VPN connection between my home and the server, and now I am only downloading 64 kilobytes a second! The connection I have created is a PPTP server on a debian machine.
Now my question is if it is possible to optimize this connection. Should I maybe switch to OpenVPN, or change operating systems? Or are there some kind of settings to tweak to make the connection optimal.
PS. The server I am running is on a XEN node. I have done the proper ip forwarding.
