List of current feature requests 2022

One feature that hopefully can get a quick turnaround would be the introduction of OpenVPN 2.6 (scheduled to come out 1 Dec), and specifically ovpn-dco, which at least in initial tests has resulted in massive performance improvements when connected to dco enabled servers. Given that the AXT1800 has substantially better AES-GCM performance compared to ChaCha20-Poly1305, OpenWRT might even be faster than Wireguard (again, when connected to a dco server).

The main hangup, unfortunately, is that dco won’t work on the 4.4 kernel without significant modification (but should on 5.4).

Actually when using kernel 5.4 and 64bit system on AXT1800, Openvpn is up to 600Mbps, same as Wireguard.
But as 64bit system has various problems, eventually not used for release.

Sad! Any chance we could make a test build in the infra builder and mess with it? (Maybe patch it?)

Is this a modem you’re planning to release?
I’d absolutely love to use OpenVPN with the full 600mbps speed! Really hope that a future modem will support it :smile: :pray:

It is just kernel upgrade and hardware acceleration for AES.

As most users use Wireguard which reach up to 600mbps already, the demand for openvpn is not that high.

Unless you actually want to use it in production :slight_smile:

Wireguard is great for basic stuff, but once you start adding any more complicated routing, or have to manage hundreds of devices it becomes unworkable quickly.

Possible to get banip type of software to ban countries like Russia, China, Romania, etc. ?

I’d like to block those connections completely. :+1:

Also, a monthly WAN bandwidth tracker would be nice.
