We really should have a page on how we test the network. We have been experiencing problems data transfer speeds over the OpenVPN tunnels below are a series of proposed tests to find out what the problem is.

###Testing SOWN VPN Connections###

#Ping SOWN-VPN on IPv4 1000 times
ping sown-vpn.ecs.soton.ac.uk

#Ping SOWN-VPN on IPv6 1000 times
ping6 sown-vpn.ecs.soton.ac.uk

#Repeat ping tests for sown-auth, sown-nat, ford.ecs.soton.ac.uk, users.ecs.soton.ac.uk,  www.kame.net.  

#Traceroute SOWN-VPN on IPv4
traceroute sown-vpn.ecs.soton.ac.uk

#Traceroute SOWN-VPN on IPv6
traceroute6 sown-vpn.ecs.soton.ac.uk

#Repeat traceroute tests for sown-auth, sown-nat, ford.ecs.soton.ac.uk, users.ecs.soton.ac.uk,  www.kame.net.   

#HTTP get a 10mb random file from sown-vpn using v4 over the tunnel
wget -4 http://vpn.sown.org.uk /throughput-test.dat

#HTTP get a 10mb random file from sown-vpn using v6
wget -6 http://vpn.sown.org.uk /throughput-test.dat

#Repeat wget tests for sown-auth, sown-nat, users.ecs.soton.ac.uk.

If you have any further tests add them to this page
