Painfully slow Mobile VPN - but what's better?
For my one client using Mobile VPN, called Train Trax Inc, the main office has a fiber ISP connection with 1Gb up and down. For users connecting via Mobile VPN to access the file server, they get 5Mb up/down on average, but it could be 7Mb sometimes and other times it could be 3Mb.
For my other client using Mobile VPN, called Steel Wires Inc, the main office has 1Gb down/300Mb up coax, and their users are also getting a 5Mb up/down with the plus/minus of 2Mb.
I've ruled out the users' web speeds by testing using my own remote connection via Mobile VPN...which max's out at 7Mb at either main office...and I have 1Gb up/down fiber. What gives? I've seen the article about slow SMB/CIFS transfers (article ID 000013599), but is there a better alternative? I can send all these users their own WatchGuard to create a better vpn/protocol connection, but wanted to bounce this off you guru's first.
