Peer to Peer VPN

  mjf123 11:16 18 Jan 2008

Situation: Two workgroups each with 4 XPpro Pc's, Draytek Vigor 2800VG routers. They are connected with site to site VPN. The four computers at site A access files on one computer at site B.

Problem: When trying to open a Word or Excel file over the vpn it takes forever. At present, it's quicker to open the remote folder, then copy and paste the file onto my desktop before opening. When I have finished with the file, I have to save it to my desktop before copying and pasting it back across the network.

I would b grateful for any suggestions as to what I could do to speed up opening my files directly across the vpn.
