Comparison SSL VPN - Clients | Watchguard vs. Sophos UTM
we just compared the Watchguard SSL VPN client with the Sophos OpenVPN client and found that on the same system with measured and controlled bandwidth, the Sophos OpenVPN was significantly faster than the one from watchguard.
We are talking about 8-15 Mbps in both directions on the same system with the same destination-host. The tests were performed with iperf3, several times with different targets in the LAN -> similar results here !
What can be the trigger here ?
The Watchguard does NOT have a large set of rules, the Sophos is almost "bursting" with rules and various interfaces that sometimes have massive traffic, so I would actually expect the result the other way around.
Any ideas about this ?
Thanks and best regards,
