installed new NAS drive, but connection runs very slow over VPN, but was fast when data was on server
Posted on 2014-08-12
hi, I've just purchased a Seagate business storage NAS so I could move data from my windows 2008 sbs.
I have a remote site, which has a site to site VPN.
The users at the remote site complained it takes longer to access the folder shares since the shares were moved from the server to the NAS.
I just so happened to leave a copy of the old share on the server (hidden share now), just in case anything went wrong.
after some testing from a remote pc I get the following time scale in accessing a share,
remote pc to server (old share) - 5 seconds
remote pc to NAS (new share) - 28 seconds
Seagate won't help me, due to a VPN being involved. Can any one point me in a direction to try a few things that may increase the speed.
