I'm a new administrator for a company in St.Louis.  Between two office locations (geographically seperated by 15 miles), we have a tunnel with an X550e on one side and an X700 on the other.  The two devices are communicating well with each other.  However, my users have to use Terminal Services to work between the two locations.  This connection speed is fast and works well.  But I don't understand why they just can't use their VPN connection.

In other words, drag and drop, communication to the server on either end is horrendously slow, file transfer, email updates, etc... unworkable because its too slow.  We have a T1 going out and coming in to each location.. there should be plenty of bandwith available.  Obviously the rdp protocol is working... term serv is fast, fast, fast!!  

So my question is.... where do I begin to troubleshoot why file transfers are slow between the two locations outside of the terminal serv?  Is there a protocol or port or bandwith throttle inherrent in watchguard that has to be enabled?  Solving this problem would probably garner me a raise in my newfound job.  PLEASE HELP!
