Hardware / Re: Asus N3050I-C for OpenVPN (100MBIT WAN)

Thanks for the quick reply - and the tip on the NICs!

I'm curious to know if anyone has tried anything of a similar spec with an OpenVPN connection. It's probably worth mentioning its an OpenVPN client (not server). I have a Ubuntu Server with an old Intel Quad core which I temporary configured as a router/gateway for my network to try it out and I could only get about 3.4MB/s instead of 12.5MB/s which is why I wonder if a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom would be capable?

Thank you.

Hi All,

I'm trying to figure out a low cost system for a pfSense setup that would allow me to get the maximum out of my 100MBIT WAN connection (12.5 Mega Bytes / Sec.) using OpenVPN.

With my current router in modem mode and a direct connection to my main PC with an OpenVPN connection through an SSL tunnel I know I am able to get the full 12.5MBps so it's just a matter of routing power.

I am currently looking at this motherboard and CPU combo ( an was just wondering if a 1.6Ghz dual core would be powerful enough for OpenVPN (through SSL tunnel) routing?

I have another question also. I know most people recommend only Intel NIC's but to cut costs would it be acceptable to use a single Intel NIC ( for the WAN connection and use the on-board NIC for the LAN?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.
