Network Traffic

Post by mamal_123 » Sun Mar 24, 2013 9:27 pm

First Off.thank you all for this freeware software.

after evaluating the client software
i found out that when im connected to a Softether VPN Server with the VPN Client,
Some packets are sending and receiving and kinda it is using my network traffic that is abnormal.
besides, when im using the L2TP/IPSec Microsoft connection its not happenig at all.
is there any solution that i can stop sending and receiving dummy packets ?
moreover,I Did uncheck the part " Use Keep Alive Internet Connection " on the server.
but it is still the same as it was.
the reason that i want to stop it is beacuse my internet traffic is not unlimited.
thank you all.

SoftEther VPN sends dummy traffic to watch the connection health.
But it is only about 100 bps.
I think this is not traffic which you worry about.

I think that the traffic is broadcast packet.
Please check packet logs of the virtual hub.

Please try to use packet analyzer like as Wireshark.
