Slow BOVPN between fireboxes, watchguard
Posted on 2009-05-18
I've recently set up a BOVPN between an Watchguard Firebox X1250e (Site A) and X550e (Site B). Performance between the two sites is very poor now. This is at University, site A has a 100mb connection, site B has a 10mb connection. FTP'ing 100mb dummy file from Site A to Site B runs at 100kb/s which I think is way too slow.
When I do a speed test to the internet from Site B (using DSL reports) I get about 250kb/s for up/down. Site A does 7500kb/s down 1000kb/s up.
Does anyone have ideas for ways to speed up the connection?
