Terminal Server over WAN ping time.
Posted on 2004-09-16
we currently have a win2k3 std server, with terminal server setup.
We have several remote clients (all based in Australia) that access TS via WAN.
We are looking to setup a second server and are deciding on two options.
1) we lease a high performance (dual xenium) dedicated server in a US datacenter
ie theplanet.com and benefit from the cheaper data and better servers but have to
deal with a slower connection time as all clients are in Australia (ping time is
2) we lease an average performace (p4) dedicated server here in Aus and benefit from the
faster connection. (ping time is approx 25-48ms) but deal with the higher data costs and
Poorer server performance.
we have an average of 25 client machines logging via remote access and using MS office 2003
and several intranet sites hosted on that machine.
how slow can a TS connection be ?
