Scenario: Two Balance Ones, call them Alpha and Beta.
Beta (local side) is used to provide access to a NAS on Alpha (remote side).
PepVPN connection needs to be established from Alpha to Beta. Whereby connection from Alpha to Beta is an Outgoing.
Reason - Outgoing connection gets full speed of either Upload or Download capabilities of service.
If instead an Incoming connection is made (Beta to Alpha), it goes through service providers remote server, which is then Throttled to less than 1/3rd of full speed of either Upload or Download. *Have no idea as to why. Service provider insists there is no throttling. But numerous testing show otherwise. *
Thus far, setting up PepVPN connection between Alpha and Beta has resulted in what appears to be Incoming connection, (instead of Outgoing connection as expected); which results in drastically reduced connection speeds.
Alpha is setup with IP address of Beta. Beta does not have the IP address of Alpha (Remote Host field is let blank on Beta PepVPN setup), because Alpha’s IP address may or may not be valid.
Testing via SSH Tunnel (Outgoing) from Remote system (Alpha side) to Local system (Beta side) provides full speed of either Upload Or Download capabilities of service. If the reverse is done (Incoming) Local to Remote, then speed of either Upload or Download is throttled to less than 1/3rd.
How do I force PepVPN to establish connection in a particular direction, so as to avoid service providers remote server, similar to Testing done via SSH Tunnel?
