This is what i got so far. Im using the watchguard SOHO to create a branch office vpn. All the negotiating is done on my soho and the firebox on the other end. Considering i have dsl and a slow upload speed would that be a culprit for me running so slow. When the vpn is removed and the box has no services im still running slow in dsl tearms but there is a definate increase in speed.
