I have an app that accesses the internal network at work. I can run it from home via VPN but when I do, it runs much slower. I suspect that it is getting timeouts caused by the firewall and somehow recovering. Is there a utility I can run on my machine to diagnose this? I'm thinking I can then request a modification to the firewall rules to relieve the timeouts.
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

Running things via VPN is essentially slower due to the additional network hops and encryption.
If you must use a VPN, consider where the VPN is located (latency purposes) and the speed your getting from the connection.
