So I've installed VPN service that comes with Windows Server 2008. Works perfectly, etc.
When a client remote desktops to one of the private servers at the office, via VPN .. it's pretty slow.
Now - how long is a piece of string?
So before I get all the obligatory checks, I'll list the things from Mr. Obvious:
- Our modem/router (fritz!box) has a data/graph that shows incoming and outbound bandwidth. Both directions are barely getting used when a client has RDP'd via VPN.
- Our office internet connection is running at 21,9 Mbit/s download 1,3 Mbit/s upload.
I feel like it's maxing at .. modem speeds ??
Is there any tricks I can do to confirm this and possibly even fix this?
- Client side connection is ADSL2+, currently running at 11MBit/s. Bandwidth is not 100% downstream/upstream at client.
- only 1 person is RDP'ing (me). No one else is in the office right now. Office bandwidth both ways is nothing, except my RDP connection.
So i'm making the assumption that there's plenty of bandwidth to burn either way .. which was why i was thinking that issue is something else.
Is there any way I can prove that client and office are not maxing out the bandwidth's either way so we can cross that item off the checklist of possible reasons?
