Public folders over VPN lag
Posted on 2008-02-06
I have a problem at hand with speed of Public folders when accessed remotely through a VPN.
Here is a setup:
- Two offices, connected via VPN between Sonicwalls
- Exchange server (2003) is in office #1
- Clients (outlook 2K3) are configured for RPC over HTTP
Symptoms: users from office #2 experience an unbelievable lag time when accessing public folders. Some of our public folders are HUGE, but when accessed from outside of the network or from office #1 lag times are significantly less.
What are my options? I guess I need to tell the clients to go out to exchange server and not through the VPN tunnel. Using hosts doesn't work.
