How do go about discovering where your bottleneck is with an openvpn setup?
Ive setup openvpn on my remote server and have setup everything so that my desktop clients (vista and ubuntu) at home can connect and have all internet traffic directed successfully through the tunnel.
Im using it to stream video that would normally be inaccessible outside of the UK whilst im in Japan i.e. iplayer.
The problem is its oftenvery choppy and unplayable. Though its good when england is sleeping.
Im new to servers (not to stuff like programming though) so dont know where the problem lies, how to find it out or even where to start looking. For example things ging through my head
Is it the limitations of the vps? How do i find that out? my plan:- vps1
Is it the location of the actual server in the uk? How do i know if there are any better coming from japan?
Is it my configurations? How do i pinpoint that?
Or is it working as good as it can be? How do i know that for sure?
What would be your process of elimantion? Quick checks that would tell you which direction to move forward in?
