How can I speed up my Perfect Privacy VPN connection?:

Encrypting your entire network through Perfect Privacy VPN requires considerable processing power and bandwidth. This is why you may notice speeds that are lower than your normal ISP speeds. Although the connection may be a little slower you should be comforted in knowing it is also fully encrypted through a secure VPN connection. There are still several ways that you may be able to improve slow Perfect Privacy connection speeds on your router. 

  1. Try out alternate server locations listed in your .ovpn files folder.  In general a server located as close to your physical, geographic location as possible will provide the best speeds.
    • When changing servers make sure that you are also updating the TLS-Auth Key, Certificate Authority, Private Client Cert and Private Client Key. Finding this information and where to put is located in our Perfect Privacy VPN Setup Guide
  2. Perfect Privacy VPN OpenVPN traffic can be sent via UDP Protocol and Port 1149 or via TCP Protocol and Port 1152. In some regions or use cases one OpenVPN protocol may be faster than the other. 
    • In DD-WRT you can find the Tunnel Protocol and Port settings on the Services > VPN page.
    • In Tomato you can find the Protocol and Port settings on the VPN Tunneling > OpenVPN Client > Basic page. 
  3. Try using our alternate PPTP connection guide for Perfect Privacy VPN. PPTP connections require less processing power than OpenVPN, which may allow for faster connection speeds. Although it is not as secure as OpenVPN you still get an anonymous IP address in the country of your choosing. Make sure you do not have an OpenVPN connection running at the same time as a PPTP connection.
