that's why I suggested not to use UDP protocol for VPN. UDP is slow with slow network connections and is extremely dependent of packet loss and ping time. I always get lower speeds with UDP rather than TCP/IP, on the same connection. FTP transfer is always ca 30-40% faster than UDP transfer (NFS or Cipe VPN), even on fibre cable connections. And I think there's nothing to do to make things better.
