    I've set up two different vpn configurations:

    1. ipsec
    2. pptp

    I'm using shrew client for windows with the 1 flavour and windows native pptp client for the 2nd flavor.

    I know that pptp is less secure than ipsec but I appreciate the seamless integration with windows in the second case, therefore I favour that.

    I've noticed though that performancewise, the pptp vpn is much slower than the ipsec one. Can anybody help me optimizing the pptp configuration should I'd doing something wrong?

    Hello there,

    just tested this again and I can confirm that using Shrew ipsec client with my current configuration I manage to get almost 3,5MBps while I can't seem to even reach 1MBps over pptp.

    Anybody out there willing to assist me?
