VMware ESXi 5.5 - Remote Latency via VPN

Are there any specific protocols, etc?  Pertaining to VMware that must be configured in order to address sluggishness over the VPN?  A large part of the situation may be that the environment is on another side of the hemisphere where the team trying to access it is located.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Not specifically, is this Guest VMs, Accessing Web Client, vSphere Client ?

Check which adapter is in the VM, and experiment with E1000 and VMXNET3 (making sure VMware Tools is installed for this nic).

Also bandwidth and latency is a characteristics of the link, and whether this is a private or public link e.g. internet.

I agree wit Hancock that this sounds like more of an issue with the link. How fast is your WAN connection? When you ping the remote ESXi host what are your responce times? Are you connecting to the ESXI host directly or through vCenter?
