Speeds over Win2k Network
Mon Sep 15 16:25:00 2003
I have been having a puzzling experience with VNC. Two of us connect to our
work network using VPN over the internet. Both of us are using DSL, one of
us has a pretty fast connection, the other connects at about 320 kbps. We
have both had great luck in connecting and the screen refreshes fairly
At the same time, refreshing screens over our wan at work is considerably
slower. This is just the reverse of what I would expect. Across the cat5
between machines on either side VNC works great. Across the T-1 from our
main office to the warehouse is extremely slow.
The odd part of all this is that if we connect from home and connect to a
warehouse machine, internet traffic runs into our main office, through the
firewall (which does the VPN) and the out to the warehouse over that same
link that seems so slow when we connect sitting at our desks.
Anyone run into anything like this? Any suggestions?
