VPN connection slows cloud application performance
I have a remote user who uses our cloud based accounting package, then connects via the VPN client to print checks on a printer in the office. The cloud application works fine until she establishes the VPN connection, then the response time plummets. It will take minutes to refresh her screen when doing a query or transaction. Disconnect the VPN and she's back to normal.
She had another issue when printing checks. When she'd submit them, they would sit in her print queue, sometimes print a while later, (minutes or hours) then other times print immediately or not at all. I found that she had two network connections, one wireless and the other wired through her dock. I disconnected the wireless and her queued print jobs began printing. But that didn't fix the response time with the application.
