I am having the following issues with this app from the clearos store:

-slow speeds compaired to native apps created by ibvpn
-servers listed in the app that do not exist anymore
-servers listed that do not connect

How often is this app updated, when will the next update be. I switched VPN companies due to this handy app but now its just a pain in my neck.
In ibVPN

    I am able to get 1GB speeds at 112MB/sec for read write over the network to shares and my speedtest.net is able to pull down my full internet speeds of 150 down and 20 up.

    Its only when I send connections through ibvpn that my speeds slow down to 30 down and 9 up. I applied the update you suggested.

    You have the infamous RTL8111/8168/8411. Assuming you're on ClearOS 7.4, please can you do a :
    yum install kmod-r816*
    Then reboot. it should improve you networking performance through that interface.

    Under the bonnet, it replaces the r8169 driver with the r8168 driver which is much better sited to your NIC.

    The dev in responsible for this was going to release an update a few days ago when he noticed a critical bug. I'm not dure when he is hoping to release it now.

    FWIW one bug he was going to fix was where there is a space in the endpoint name such as "Hong Kong" and "New York". At the moment you cannot use these endpoints.

    Speed should not be an issue unless you have a very fast internet connection. The underlying app is OpenVPN so anything you can achieve with OpenVPN on your server should be possible with ibVPN.

    For speed issues, as a lateral jump, what is the output of:
    lspci -k | grep Eth -A 3
