Downloading at turtle speed

By stergios_nik ·
Hello.

We are experiencing a problem with the internal internet bandwidth consumption.

If someone (internally in the LAN) downloads a file from our web server which is located on the same LAN segment then the file does not download immediately but I think that the request is sent to the external interface of the router and the file is downloaded (internally) very very slow (10 K/sec).

Could I configure something in order to allow all my internal users that are accessing our web server (from inside on the same LAN segment) to use the internal local area network speed?

It seems that the internal user is utilizing the bandwidth that our server uses for serving the external users. Normally, the system should take advantage of the internal LAN high speed connections for downloading the information.

Possibly some network settings are wrong to the proxy server.

Thank you in advance.

Set the clients to not use the proxy server for internal network segments.

For IE, the following will work:

Click Tools.
Click Internet Options.
Click Connections tab.
Click Lan Settings Tab.
Click Advanced.
In the box "Do not use proxy server for addresses beginning with:" place your local network segment, an example being 199.199.199.*.
Click Ok.
Click the box for Bypass Proxy Server for local addresses.
Click Ok.

Enjoy!

Set up a new intranet domain name (eg. yourdomain.local) for internal use on your DNS Server which points to the internal network interface of that DNS Server. Tell your users to use that local domain name when they are inside the company.

Ok. Problem solved. It was a routing problem. I added an entry to the routing table of my netcard with "route add 192.168.x.x etc).

Thank you very much.
