Remote desktop/VPN bandwidth requirements
Posted on 2006-05-01
One user on our network has problems connecting via remote desktop and VPN to a server. It keeps kicking him out on his DSL connection at home, but not anywhere else. After extensive testing and finger-pointing, the dsl provider says he doesn't have enough bandwidth, that it needs at least 3 mbps to do what he wants (he needs to view image files over this connection). He uses this system with no problem at all when he connects on DSL from somewhere else (1.5 mbps) or anywhere else he goes. I still think it's a problem with his line at home, since this is the only place it happens.
What else can he do at home to test or improve the connection to keep him from dropping?
