Softether overhead and throughput

Post by amintnt » Thu Feb 22, 2018 1:37 am

Hello,

I've been obfuscating Softether connections using obfs4 (a Tor's pluggable trasport), but the throughput is drastically decreased and delays are noticeable. This is weird because obfuscation of HTTPS proxy connections using the same pluggable transport delivers almost a full throughput. Any suggestions how to deal with this?

TCP over TCP is difficult to get good throughput.

SoftEther VPN is tuned for TCP over TCP. So, tuning may be needed for another transport layer.
