There are programs.
But if you transfer a 1GB file then you can write down how long it took, then calculate the speed MB/min for example, thats a cheap way:

you will need a webserver with PHP (can set one up on your laptop)


Just view the source (there is a link on the page) and copy it into a new file .php

Startup what ever webserver you are using and then navigate to this page from the other side of the VPN.

If you have a Sniffer or Fluke you can generate packets at whatever rate you want. If you don't then doing an FTP with a large file between devices on either side will give you some performance numbers.

To check the maximum transfer rate, you should really set up something that transfers multiple files simultaneously/parallell between the sites to max it out. I doubt you will get 100% throughput with just one file at a time.

Otherwise, it's just about calculating transfer time vs data amount.
