  1. Hey Chris and Allen,
  2.  
  3. I love TechSNAP and all of the JB shows!

  5. My question is in regrards to increasing the speed of my VPN. I currently have a PPTP server running on an Ubuntu Server at my house. When I connect to the VPN using both Ubuntu and Windows, the speeds fluctuate quite a bit but are usually very low. I realize that my VPN download speed cannot exceed the upload speed at my house. However, my home upload speed is 5 Mbps but I usually am able to only get about 0.5 Mbps when connected to my VPN.
  6.  
  7. Could this be an issue with my config? or is it just a symptom of my home's upload speed?

  9. Would it be better to go to a hosted VPN or a hosted server where I could install my own VPN on, say, a GoDaddy server. I would like to use the VPN to route traffic through as well as to be able to access my home file server.
  10.  
  11. What do you think is causing my slow VPN speeds and what do you think is the best option? I'm on a tight budget and I'm not sure what a hosted server to run a VPN would even cost.

  13. Thanks for all the great content. Keep up the amazing work!
