[Openvpn-users] OpenVPN Performance - help

I built a gateway server on Debian and installed OpenVPN.  I can connect to it fine.

The problem is that remote users are complaining the connection to the network behind it is unreliable and slow.  I have personally had good luck connecting but 
sometimes things scream to a halt for no reason.

The entire network behind the gateway is windows based.  Mainly people just access files off a Windows Share.  

Is there a way for me to confirm OpenVPN's connection and if it's dropped?  What must "verb" be set to and what should I look for in the logs?  Should I look in the server 
or client log?

I'm not expecting a super fast connection, but what are the bandwidth requirements for OpenVPN?  Lets say for example a user has a Word document open on a Windows 
Share and is working on it.  What are the requirements for 3 people to be connected at once?  The internet connection is ADSL  (3.0 Mbps downstream; 1.0 Mbps 

I've been fighting this problem for a long time.  I'm desparate for help.   Thanks.
