Pfsense OpenVPN Performance

While doing a clean install of Pfsense 2.1 this morning for a customer that will need VPN connectivity, I realized I have been using this OpenVPN tweak for a long time but have yet to share it.  I originally found this tweak on the Pfsense forums here. Login to your Pfsense web interface and navigate to System > Advanced > System Tunables.  Find net.inet.ip.fastforwarding and set the value to 1.

Note: this setting cannot be used with IPsec and does not generate ICMP redirects, the former is primarily why it is off by default.

Did you find this article useful? Why not share it with your friends?
