I have been doing some research and this seems to be a common problem: a linux server and a windows client. If someone could help me determine why my windows client is slow when using my linux server, I will donate $50 USD in your name to the openvpn project. I really need to figure this out, and I can't seem to figure it out myself.

I upgraded the Windows client and CentOS server to OpenVPN 2.1 instead of OpenVPN
2.0, and it didn't change anything. My Windows clients are 50% slower with the vpn enabled, whereas the OS X clients are only 10%-20% slower with the vpn enabled. How can I fix the poor performance of the Windows vpn clients?
I have an openvpn server running CentOS. If I connect with a Mac OS X client, I see a slowdown of about 10%, but if I connect with a Windows client, I see a slowdown of about 30%-50%. I have tried multiple windows clients and they are all equally slow. My vpn server is running in redirect-gateway mode, so all client traffic passes through the server. Any ideas as to why this is happening?
