Hello, We at openvpn community are in the middle of reviewing wintun support patches. Wintun is an alternative tun driver for Windows (https://www.wintun.net/), which performs significantly faster in comparison to existing tap-windows6 driver. While we could stare at the code, it won’t replace testing by users, so we ask for your help.
An information regarding wintun-enabled OpenVPN GUI installer has been added to official community download page: https://openvpn.net/community-downloads/. A few things to consider: - this is by no means official OpenVPN Windows release - the code is based on master branch, which means it contains not so well tested features - major parts of wintun support code haven’t underwent community code review process, means some things may not work and there could be bugs To use wintun instead of tap-windows6: - add "windows-driver wintun” to .ovpn config file, or - add “--windows-driver wintun” to openvpn.exe command line The signed installers for various Windows versions could be downloaded here: https://staging.openvpn.net/openvpn2/ Wintun is mostly about performance, you should see the difference starting from 300-400Mbit/s link. In our tests we were able to achieve 730Mbit/s with wintun-enabled OpenVPN GUI client against openvpn2 community server. We would really appreciate your feedback! --- Lev Stipakov OpenVPN Inc
