 Subject:  More throughput testing - m0n0wall to m0n0wall (wired) IPSec
 Date:  Thu, 3 Jun 2004 20:10:12 -0700

I have the following setup to test performance (all via crossover cable):

PC1 - m0n0wall1 (net4801 w/1401) - m0n0wall2 (WRAP w/1411) - PC2

I'm getting raw throughput of 38 Mbps (firewall pass all, no NAT). 
With 3DES/SHA1 I get on average 1.7 Mbps throughput.  With
Blowfish/SHA1 I get on average 4.2 Mbps throughput.

I've seen claims of 10x these results.  Is my setup incorrect?
