VPN speed over our network
Posted on 2009-04-08
Good Morning Experts.
Here's my current situation/issue. I have a windows SBS2003 server environment running a local domain. We have a Cisco 5505 ASA firewall. All of our remote users connect to it via Cisco VPN client. (We have a T1 connection) They complain that the download speeds are MUCH slower when downloading from our server as opposed to a website. I've witnessed it, and I have to say that the speeds are depressing. A 3 meg file is taking 3-5 minutes, while downloading that file off of a website takes under a minute...
I'm certain there has to be something I can do to speed this up on my end. I just don't know what it is. My question for you:
What can I do to improve speeds to our VPN users?
