Poor SSH Performance

Post by m0ckery13 »

I use putty to build an ssh connection to my home router for when I travel and sometimes at work to send my internet traffic through.

Nothing has changed on my side, I'm running a 50Mb down / 10Mb up connection at home, same router and same devices when I travel but the SSH performance is really poor.

I get time outs or complete disconnects when connecting to the web / etc.

Is there some way to boost SSH performance in the settings?

check your routers log for connections (other people)

I wouldn't be surprised if somebody is try to hack into your router etc

use openVPN

I will check them. Thanks for the heads up.

For Open VPN how would I set it up for only internet traffic from work? I want all of the other traffic to stay on my work lan.

I can't find anything in the logs that shows someone trying to get in. I only see my connection and things like this...

Maybe you could try enabling SSH Compression

On the router side or in putty?

The used to do this on my router running dd-wrt and never had these issues, but I love Gargoyle for all of the other options so I've stuck with it.

I still have my dd-wrt router on as a second AP in my house. I've tried opening ports on my gargoyle router and use the SSH server on the DD-WRT router but I haven't been successful in opening the ports properly to go through and hit the secondary router.
