Find bottleneck on network - Very slow Remote Desktop Connections

Hi Experts,

Does anyone know of some good  open source software to monitor network bandwidth? I have a SBS 2008 server and all windows 7 clients. When using Remote Desktop to connect to a client workstation, the connection is painfully slow and pretty much unusable.

Thanks!

What kind of Switch do you have connecting your clients to your server?  Is it managed and oes it have a web interface?

This would be the first place i would check,  i know the Cisco/Linksys business class has a port monitoring tool.  I found it very useful in finding bad wiring, nics maybe the switch needs replacement.

If everything else to the server is fast then I'd check your autotuning setup....

I setup the sbs2008 vpn and then helped greatly. I could first connect to vpn and then to workstation. Not sure why but made a huge difference.

Found the actual issue to be ESXi 4.1 and SBS2008. Here is the KB article that did the trick for me:
