Connection timeouts with mobile vpn users
Posted on 2016-09-25
We just setup a colocation and all connections from our main site to colocation site seem fine. When remote user connects I start getting timeouts. Here is the setup.
At main office we have a Watchguard router, at colocation is a Fortigate router. The gateway and tunnels are setup for site to site between the 2 and it works.
At the main site on the DC, I have sites and services configured accordingly. The main site subnet is 192.168.0.0/24 and the remote site is 192.168.10.0/24. I moved one of the DC's into the server portion of the remote site. When I connect using the WatchGuard VPN client I get assigned an address on the 192.168.113.0/24 subnet. I can see all servers and access all machines on the .0.0/24 subnet without issue, when I try and hit the servers on the 10.0/24 subnet I get a few replies and then couple timeouts. If I try a continuous ping I may get up to 12 replies before getting 2-3 timeouts and then replies again. Also, if I run a continuous ping from my machine at the office (on the 0.0/24 subnet) I get all replies but will start getting some timeouts if someone connects via the WatchGuard VPN client.
I am hoping I am just missing a step as this is becoming frustrating.
If anyone can provide any insight it would be greatly appreciated.
