Our setup is as follows:
Two offices (A and B) connected with OpenVPN Access Server.
One Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
- Housed in remote datacenter.
- Terminals at both offices connect through RDP in order to use a particular piece of software concurrently.
- Network Connected printers (Deployed with GPO) that are connected to separate terminals at each office (and shared) are used with this software to print things throughout the day.
We are experiencing extremely slow printing times. Opening printer properties can take 30-60 seconds and printing times range from 30-180 seconds with no apparent reason. File sizes remain < 1mb.
This happens with each of our printers. All different models.
The server massively underutilized with a 6-core AMD, 16GB ram, 4x 120GB SSDs, and a 100 megabit port. Our VPN does not seem to be a bottleneck either.
I've been attempting to find ways to increase print speed. So far no success. What can you advise?
