(SOLVED) torguard client (400 Mb down) vs pfsense firewall (70 Mb down)

Question

CyberWar

Hopefully someone out there can help me figure this out. When I use the Windows torguard client on my desktop or laptop I have no problems getting over 400Mb download. The issue is when I configure a firewall, pfsense or untangle, I only average 70 Mb down. I have attached a screenshot of my speedtest connected to the Frankfurt server using the Windows torguard client.

Torguard client configured with:

Tunnel type: OpenVpn
Protocol: UDP
Cipher: AES-256-GCM
HMAC: SHA256

The firewall I'm testing is not virtualized, it's an old dell optiplex with an i5 and 8 GB of ram. I'm sure that's enough to handle the VPN.

Update:

I added this to the custom options on my pfsense and got the speed up to 200Mb, just need another 200 to match the TG client.

Another update:

I power cycled the modem and firewall and now I'm consistently getting over 400Mb down. I'm happy now.

These doubled the speed of my pfsense openvpn tunnels

Thank you for the values under advanced options this brings my download from 15Mbit to 80Mbit even upload says the same at 50Mbit.

I started out with AES-256-GCM | SHA 256 and now AES-128-GCM | SHA1 but I see the exact same speeds shouldn't I be able to reach higher on AES-128-GCM | SHA1 than AES-256-GCM | SHA256?

 

I am running PFSense 2.4.4-p2 of a PC Engines apu2c4 = 3 i210AT LAN / AMD GX-412TC CPU / 4 GB DRAM (superseded) Link: https://pcengines.ch/apu2c4.htm

If anyone knows a trick to get me 200Mbit down and up I will be happy this AMD quad-core machine should be able to do it.
