Is there a feature within Server 2008 that improves AD replication over slow links?

Or any other suggestions on how to improve replication over slow links?  It's a sat link

Stupid question, but is there any way to compress the replication, and then uncompress it at the other end?
Nope. There is no built-in mechanism :(
You may consider buying WAN accelerator but this probably cost a lot!

OK thanks

What about  Read Only DC, would that make a difference?
Actually no, as this is the same copy of AD database but with different attributes. RODC replicates whole domain partition but it cannot write changes to it. So, I do not think it would be an option.

OK thanks for your help

I will look into the accelerator but i think its going to be too expensive for such a small site
You're welcome :)
