I was wondering what kind of throughput and side effects come with using tomato for VPN. (shibby , modern versions etc.) Looking for general experiences and comments. I setup a PPTP Server on an Asus RTN-66u - the load quickly climbs above 1.5 when using about 8mbits of traffic, especially with encryption on. Can anyone comment on the feasability of various setups? What's the consequence of such a high load? Can the VPN service be throttled to use 40% of the cpu maximum? What sort of load/throughput can we expect when the router acts as a client instead? Last question: if your router is in client mode, how do you make it so your computers get a VPN IP address, instead of the router (I believe they call this site to site)?
