Well, the traffic between both clients has to run the path from client-a
over openvpn-server to cient-b two times in a RTT measure by ping.
It would be interesting what the value of the RTT between your
server and both of your client (of course, such a measure should be made
short before or short after the ping between both clients).

As you can see, you have a packet loss of about 10 percent. This might
indicate that one of your links might be saturated or congestioned. A
congestioned link is often the reason for a high RTT.

best regards,


PS: next time it would be more kind if you don't cite the content of
    your digest to the list ....
