VPN WAN Connection Problems Over 5 Sites traffic when no computers turned on ?
Posted on 2004-04-25
Have Six sites
The Main Centre has a fibre connection between 512k and 1mb
Using a Symantec VPN to handle the connections.
The other sites have varying connections due to being in the middle of nowhere.
Aberdovey 128k ISDN
Loch Eil 128k ISDN
Eskdale 128k ISDN
Ullswater 128k ISDN
They all connect to the main site and ping times when no machines are on less for servers and routers ping times are 30ms for ADSL and 70ms for ISDN from site to site and remain solid. After 10-15 mins strangely the activity the connections at a couple of the sites go haywire with a lot of dropped packets. and times averaging 700ms to 1400 ms on a couple of the isdn lines but strangely on a couple of connections there is no change. Is there any reason for this remembering that only servers and routers are on at this point. Any one got any free/shareware tools that may help me find out at the ip level what is causing this traffic between sites at ip/protocol level and i dont need to work for nasa to use effectively.
