I connect my macbook pro to work machines (at university) using Cisco AnyConnect vpn. The response time within the NX session is quite bad: a second or two delay consistently with typing; page redraws are in visible steps. Direct ssh sessions to the same machines within same vpn session are without noticeable delays in typing or output.
While on-site, nx from my laptop to these same machines is perfect.
How do I go about assessing which part of the pipe is getting squeezed? As it is working from home is painful, certainly can’t stand if for long.
Have you tried transferring a file, for example through SCP (outside the session)? This would show you whether bandwidth is enough i.e during the transfer of a chunky file you will be able to see what bytes/second are being sent.
scp file transfer rates are adequate but I’ll put some numbers to that claim. I have a believable 25MB/sec connect at home and the U’s pipe it , um er, rather large, but something is choking. We’ll see what stats I can get from local network folks.
