Site to Site VPN vs Remote Client VPN

Hello, i have a question regarding site to site vpn and remote access Vpn.

I currently have a site to site vpn connection between a main office in Norway and a branch office in Shanghai. Using Cisco 5505 ASA. Using the wizard and default encryption.

I also have a site to site connection between the main office here in norway and another location here in norway. That connection i use diffrent ecryption. DES MD5 GROUP2

But the connection is very slow, and many ICMP are lost when i use the ping x.x.x.x -t
When i use the VPN client and connect to the Shanghai office none of the ICMP are lost.

Any suggestions ? Maybe change the encryption level?

Could you please clarify - you mention 2 vpn tunnels (Norway<->Norway and Norway<->Shanghai).  Are both tunnels giving you ping problems or just one (which one)?  Any chance you could post your config, 'x'ing out the sensitive information (keys, etc)?

The only problem is the shanghai connection. My config is working good but im wondering what changing the encryption level could do with the speed?

Any input guys

by definition, the higher the encryption level, the longer processing time it requires, although I'm not sure that would be particularly noticeable.  Is the Shanghai connection of comparable speed to the other Norway internet connection?

the shanghai office has a 1mb connection and the norway office has a 3mb connection.

Then it's a bit slower, but 1Mb should still be enough.
All the same, I've had issues in the past with needing to adjust the mtu (maximum transmission unit) due to packet loss.

Try this on your norway<-->shanghai connection:

The thing is that it is not 1mb to norway it is 22k

atyarCommented:
didn't your last post say norway office has a 3mb connection??

daxa78Author Commented:
The 1 mb is local in china but speed test to norway is only 22k. Meaning it a lot of bandwidth is lost on the way.

atyarCommented:
in that case I would definitely follow the link I posted previously to adjust the mtu size down for the 22k link
