Slow PPTP VPN Throughput

Post by Kieran » Sat Nov 13, 2010 12:02 pm

As per the title, connections, pings, local, remote, are all fine through my PPTP VPN. Only issue is that it's terribly slow. I end up getting about 20Kb/s as opposed to 600Kb/s which is the speed of my broadband. My VPN server and end point is located in a datacentre on a gigabit network so the throttle is not in the architecture there.

I'm happy to provide settings on the server side if they would be of help. Client settings have been checked with the tweaks site on DSL Reports and MTU, MRU etc. all seem to be set correctly according to that checker when I'm connected to the VPN.

Any ideas?
