    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if it was somehow possible, using SSH to configure it, to use IKEv2 instead of OpenVPN. OpenVPN takes my speed from 30 MB/s to 5MB/s at best. So I know that my VPN provider Windscribe has IKEv2 in their client and the speeds are usually phenomenal with that. I've seen some other posts mentioning StrongSwan as a solution. I didn't quite understand how that worked, and I tried installing it using SSH to the router, but none of the general Linux commands were recognized, which I kinda expected. If there is some kind of guide or anything on how to do this, I would really appreciate it!
