remote vpn login to linux vs XP
Posted on 2007-11-20
I am a user who needs to log-in remotely and do graphic intensive work. So I don't have all the info that may be needed to fully explain the problem.
The problem I'm having is latency issues when logging into my red hat Linux workstation. There could be a 10 to 15sec delay between keystrokes.
We currently are using a web based vpn, with a java app manager. I then run VNC to connect to the red hat workstation. This method really sucks for latency and is unusable.
I can also use the web based vpn and then log-in to my remote desktop XP workstation. From there I launch VNC and connect to my linux workstation. This method works better but there still is a lot to intermittent lag. The remote desktop has very little lag by its self.
We have also tried nomachine thin client, with no luck
Inside the company intranet everything works great. Just coming from outside is there problems.
We were using Sun workstations with a Cisco VPN client and Exceed and it worked great. But when we got a new IT dept, they switched to Linux and the web-based vpn.
I'm wondering if any of the experts out there have any expirence with these issues?
Or at least point me in the right direction to getting this problem resolved.
