Throttling down a LAN?Locked
I’ve got a client who wants to bring a remote store into the LAN (realtime via a VPN using ISDN or bonded ISDN – for 256K – at one end and wireless at another) as a Peachtree client, but we want to test this on the LAN before they buy into these somewhatexpensive solutions.
Peachtree can’t tell us how much bandwidth we really need to work smoothly with this kind of setup, so we’re looking for a method at throttling one of the sales stations on the LAN down to various increments between 128 -256K. Anyone know of software that will do this? Anyone ever connected a Peachtree client in a similar way? Only the data is served; they use Win98 Peer2Peer services; only 3 systems will be accessing the data set for this store (2 sales stations at the store and 1 bookkeeper at the main office); everyone has lots of RAM (64 on sales & 128Mb on backoffice) & plenty fast CPU’s (350MHz & above).
Any help would be appreciated — thanks…
