I think that the speed of the FW:s and the link is enough. I've tested
to minimise the services on the FW:s and made sure that there where no
extra traffic over the FW:s. Bur the transfer is still slow?
Shouldn't I get almost the same transfer rate of a FTP-transfer inside
the VPN as one FTP outside the VPN?
How could I check the UDP reply timeouts? Is there enything else I
could check? Some configuration options for Cipe?
I've testet Cipe 1.5.2 and 1.5.4 together with kerlnel 2.4.18 and
there is no difference.
