Oracle reports are very slow through RDP

Hi,

I are using oracle as backend database for our inhouse software. Internally from the client PC's the software and reports working fine. We are using windows 2003 TS to provide access to other site users. they are connecting remotly to the TS server and works. Data entry and all fine, but while running reports through TS server, it takes a very long time. For example local user can generate a report in 1 minutes means, RDP users can generate the same report in 5-10 minutes.

Why reporting is very slow through RDP session?

if the report is accumulation/filtering/grouping/sorting... on the "client", it means that all the data, before the above operations has to go through the network to the client.
via RDP, which uses typically encryption for the data transport, this means a serious amount of processing overhead.

the solution would then be to modify the report so that for example the filtering/grouping happens on the database level already, and not only in the report.

if not the above answer,
do a PING from/to the remote site.  (but I'm going to assume it's fast since other things work)
see if you can temporary disable any/all virus protection on both sides.

disable any/all virus protection => I see/read that so often, and that's the LAST thing you should try ...
and a PING is only up to the network card, and will not do any encryption or actual data transport. you CAN try to simulate some pack size using the -l:
