When to use FindMTU (wodVPN)

by Jason, Friday, February 16, 2018, 23:13 (31 days ago)

I am looking to find out when to use the FindMTU function to set the MTU value in wodVPN. Do I use it only once when the Connected event is fired? Do I use it from both sides or will using it on one side work fine?

When I try to stream screen data using ffmpeg or transfer files over a VPN channel it is a very slow rate so Im trying to maximize throughput. I tried firing the FindMTU method every 10 seconds but this only made thing worse.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Jason,

no need to more it more than once, since MTU depends on your network, and not on current link speed. Once maximum size packet goes through, packet size will not change, so you can leave it 'as is' for the rest of connection - and usually as long as same connection type is used.

I hope this helps!
