How do I speed up a vpn connection when transferring files from the server to an offsite location?
Posted on 2010-09-07
Here's the goal. I have two marinas that I am setting up that will have Server 2003 for Small Business Server running in a remote office in NC. The two marinas are in SC. I will be sharing a quickbooks file with them from the server in NC. The only way I can connect is through a VPN and it is VERY slow. Right now, the data file is barely over 7 megs. That's tiny for quickbooks. It takes near 10 minutes to load it up. The broadband upload speed at the server site is 768kbps. It's as fast as they can get. This is very rural. Any ideas on what can be done? The customer isn't able to afford terminal server. Even if he was, I wouldn't know how to set it up. Is there another vpn client out there besides what is built into windows that would be faster?
