Vista Offline files very slow over Wan connection
Posted on 2007-12-06
We have a couple of Vista laptops connected to a Server 2003 Domain environment, Offline files are enabled and work very well except when the user is at a remote office. The remote office is part of a managed Lan via an ISP, link is 512/512.
It looks like the laptop opens the live file on the server and not via the cache.
I have read that SMB signing could have something to do with the slow access.
The user does not need to be opening the live files, but I also cannot ask him to work offline and then connect when he wants to check his email etc.
Any assistance to speed things up while still connected tot he network would be appreciated
