Is RDC via VPN typically VERY VERY VERY slow?

Is RDC via VPN typically VERY VERY VERY slow?

Is RDC via VPN typically VERY VERY VERY slow?

(OP)
Hello everyone

We have a remote child domain site that was taken out of our MPLS circuit and now using comcast as their source of internet.  We created a VPN tunnel from the site using a cisco router to our ASA at our colocation site so this child domain would still be part of the domain and accessible back and forth.

The problem we're seeing is the speed at which RDC is working now, dog gone sloooow and it's frustrating.  This site has 2 DC's running server 2003 enterprise(1 acting as file server) and there are only 7 users at this site.  The only other thing I am thinking could be the switch which is a 10/100 switch and not a gig-e switch.  Could the bottle neck reside there?  Or is it the vpn tunnel?

thank you for your help.

RE: Is RDC via VPN typically VERY VERY VERY slow?

look at the tunnel statistics. are there a lot of drops?? what is the latency?? the switch won't be the bottleneck.

I hate all Uppercase... I don't want my groups to seem angry at me all the time! =)

thanks for the reply.  unfortunately our router guy was laid off.  would you know what command to run on a cisco 2100 router?

what should I look for?

thanks.

RE: Is RDC via VPN typically VERY VERY VERY slow?

an easy way to test the latency is a simple extended ping from one side to the other.

I did an extended ping -t and I get more request time outs than what I would like:

sorry to extend this post....
