How to improve OpenVPN performance for low ping

Post by Nemlakufye » Mon Mar 09, 2020 5:41 pm

I am trying to reduce the lag in multiplayer games. With support from DigitalOcean, I installed OpenVPN on my Lightsail server. I have a stable connection with my own server when the VPN is off. When the VPN is on, the connection is unstable. I changed the server.conf settings like the configuration of NordVPN, but nothing changed. OpenVPN working on Ubuntu 16.04.

Code: Select all

tun-mtu 1500
tun-mtu-extra 32
mssfix 1450
ping-timer-rem
reneg-sec 0
comp-lzo no
fast-io

Improve lag and reduce ping by using a faster server connection.
Overcome geo-blocking and play multiplayer games not available when traveling.
Make sure that your data is safe and secure while you're gaming.
