I have a few databases located on a VPN.
Whenever I establish a new connection to these databases across the VPN, it takes along time (3-4 seconds). Once established, everything seems to run acceptably quick.
If I log into a box already inside the VPN, and use sqlplus to connect to the database from there, there is no delay.
When connecting with windows VPN the type appears as 'PPTP VPN'
Any ideas to the cause of the slowness, or a possible fix?
