Hi folks,

after all i was successfull installing a vpn with openvpn. Now i have
to squeez out all performance which is possible.

One screw to twiddle is compression, isn't it?

So: openvpn offers compression for the crypted data, but ppp offers
compression, too. Compressing data two times makes no sence.

What is more performant? openvpn-compression or ppp-compression?

Thank you very much for your help

With kind regards,
