openvpn for games?

Post by pipoy » Wed Nov 15, 2017 2:28 pm

Hi,

In our country, we really have a very poor internet connection compared to our countries.
So our connection for gaming is very poor while I game competitively.

So my first question is, is it possible to configure openvpn to lower my ping connection?
The game server is in singapore.

Right now I've been experimenting with openvpn with centos 7 in Vultr seeing if possible to lower ping when gaming.

While I have done this multiple times already in the past few weeks=, technically Im not sure how I had it working because it did for a few times.
But right now I deployed a new server in singapore and I cant lower my ping.

So is this possible and what how should I properly do it?

Thanks

It is very unlikely that you can get a faster internet connection by using openvpn.

Some ASCII art for fun:

Code: Select all

With VPN

   Your |    (  Clouds  )    |  VPN   |    (  Clouds  )    |  Game  |
    PC  : == (    of    ) == : server : == (    of    ) == : server |
    #1  |    ( Internet )    |   #2   |    ( Internet )    |        |

       #1 = Encrypt and decrypt VPN packets
       #2 = Encrypt and decrypt VPN packets (and routing to game)


Without VPN

   Your |    (  Clouds  )    |  Game  |
    PC  : == (    of    ) == : server |
        |    ( Internet )    |        |
