I have 2 CISCO ASA 5505 v 8.2 in 2 locations (5 Mbps symmetrical up down circuits at both locations) . They work fine running a MySQL database; However another application running Sybase Anywhere 9.0 is painfully slow.
I tried the tcp_bypass instructions by cisco to exclude tcp traffic but  for some reason could not get it to take; changed MTU t0 1300 on Desktops as well as both Firewalls...

I was considering adding WAN Optimization by CISCO WAVE or Riverbed..both large cost..but was not sure if I could fix this speed issue otherwise..Your comments are greatly appreciated.
Thanks

It could be the latency that is your problem (What is the Latency between these sites). Chatty apps suffer with high Latency. I can recommend Riverbed it’s a brilliant WAN optimiser which I have used extensively. It will help with chatty applications.

a ping for the server has no packet loss and has time of 9ms and TTL=128

Well..tested the other ping form the other location and gave a whopping latency of 28 ms vs my LAN which is <1ms..

So, do you think WAN optimizer from Riverbed is the way to go..any other ways to reduce this latency?  You have been a great help already..Thanks
