Increase Performance of Quickbooks Over VPN

We have a client that uses Quickbooks Pro 2007 Premier Professional Services Edition with a multi-user license.  The client has two small offices across the city from each other that are connected by two SonicWALL TZ170 VPNs/Firewall/Routers over business DSL lines.  When using Quickbooks in office A to work on a file in office B over the VPN, the application crawls.  Note that the file must stay at one location in order to ensure backup.  Our answer to this was that this sluggishness is to expected with a setup such as that.  But, performing my due diligence, I pose the question here:  Short of faster connections, what can be done to increase performance for this setup?

With that size database, your problem is the speed of the broadband connection and the application itself.  There's nothing much you can do to speed this up other than using a remote control application (i.e., remote desktop or a 3rd party remote control app) instead of using a VPN connection.

Is this file used by others? Does this person use a laptop? What size is the file?

The file is being used by others at the same time.  

There is more than one user that this pertains to, so or the purposes of this question, there are no laptops involved.  

The file size is ~58MB.

Yep, with those constraints I agree with hypercat. Short of having a terminal server (so all users could connect to that first and run the application there) I think they are out of luck.
