Long ping time to workstation from VPN tunnel
Posted on 2006-11-06
I have a workstation that is serving a hotel database. I can ping other machines through the firewall via the VPN tunnel and get response times of around 20-50ms. However, the machine in question gives me times around 1400-1500ms with well over 50% packet loss. if I ping the workstation with the local firewall I get 1ms response times. If I connect up to the firewall via the Linksys QuickVPN client I get response times around 30-50ms with almost no packets lost. For some reason, the site-to-site VPN tunnel takes a LONG time to return a ping on this one station. The long response times makes serving the database almost impossible.
Here is some more background on the network:
- Peer to Peer.
- Two Gateways exist: First is central reservations satellite connection: 172.18.151.80/28 GW 172.18.151.94. Second is internet connection on Linksys RV082: 172.18.151.80/28 GW 172.18.151.81.
- both gatway routers are connected to same switch.
Here is some on the workstation:
- First network card is connected to switch and is setup with the satellite as the gateway and is configured with an IP of 172.18.151.92 SN 255.255.255.240 GW 172.18.151.94.
- Second network card is connected to switch and is setup with the internet firewall as the gateway and is confugured with an IP of 172.18.151.82 SN 255.255.255.240 GW 172.18.151.81.
I am pretty sure it is the routing between this workstation and both gateways is the culprit but I am not too sure on how to proceede.
