I have set up a remote site that connects to one of our customer's main offices. I have an ADSL in place that can provide eight Mbps bandwidth but the provider advises that we can generally expect to obtain five-to-six Mbps which is sufficient. However, the transfer rates are pitiful, and it is acting like a dial-up modem operating at 56 Kbps. When I do not use the VPN the transfer/download rates are fine. It looks like there is a problem with the VPN connection, which is limiting the bandwidth available. I have numerous VPN connections that connect to a concentrator at the main site. Could the VPN be acting as a limiter in this situation?
