RAS is slow.

By shafferm ·
I have set up RAS on a new server running MS Backoffice Small Business Server 4.5 and a workstation running NT Workstation 4.0. The workstation dials in and logs on fine, but the connection is so slow that it is practically unusable. I have tried using TCP/IP and NetBEUI with no noticable difference. How can I speed it up?

- some business application
- file manipulation with Windows Explorer

Sorry but ras is slow! IF your remote workstation is dailing in to run programs off the server it will be extremly slow. Using a 56k modem does not give you high speed access. The access wil be like running Windows on an old IBM PC.

Consider usings a remote control program like Carbon Copy, PC Anywhere, or one of the others.

Then you can dail in to the PC on the nework using the remote control program from the the remote workstation.

This way only the screen, keyboard and, mouse data is transferred thru the modem. The computer in the office actually runs the applications making the whole remote access process faster since you are not transferring programs and data thru the modem connection.

Dude, i dont think there is much you can do...Seriously, listen cause I will save you some headaches in trying to up the speed.

RAS IS SUPER SLOW...so I said fine, Ill set up a VPN...Guess what VPN IS SUPER SLOW.

I connected from my home PC which is about 1 mile away from our PDC and VPN server. I have ADSL at home as well, so from NIC to NIC VPN I found that it was just as slow as RAS modem to modem.

Sorry to sound so pessimistic, but show this to your boss so he doesnt think you cant do your job :)

If however you do boost up your speed...please let me know

Later

Trent
