Speed Tests over RDC or UVNC report slower speeds
Posted on 2010-09-23
I am sure my brain is clogged … but let me tell you about this weirdo. Customer behind a Sonicwall TZ170, previously with AT&T DSL (6.0/384) now with Comcast (24/2).
All PCs in the network, including the servers, wired or wirelessly report speeds (speakeasy.net) for more than 30 mbps down and no less than 6 up. This speed test result does not change whether we are sit onthe PC or UNVC to them from the Server (sbs 2003) to the PCs.
We connect remotely to the servers using RDC or UVNC and .. here is the weirdo …. Once we reach the servers either way and run the speed test, the download gets down to 1/3, about 6 or 7 mbps; the upload remain unchanged.
There are no bandwidth restrictions for any kind of traffic.
It does nto happen for Customers on DSL or T1; only on Comcast.
UVNC Server 1.0.5, Viewer 126.96.36.199 and 1.0.5.
