RV042 QuickVPN Throughput SLOW-request help

    I have the RV042 installed at several client offices, and can sucessfully connect to the router using QuickVPN.

    Issue #1
    However, the through-put is terrible. (moving 50 mb file from remote computer, to local computer, via Quick VPN tunnel, takes about 20 minutes)

    Setup: rv042, Firmware v1.3.7.4, Verizon DSL, static IP (not PPPoE)
    Quick VPN client - v1.0.38, Computer: WinXPro, SP2

    I'd like to run a client-server app (uses sybase sql) that connects to the server, via Quick VPN connection. The client software, DOES successfully see the mapped drive, and the target server, but when lauching, takes about 15 mintues to load. (yikes)

    Are there any suggestions to tweak settings for faster performance? Or known issues that cause me to try a different approach for this remote office to connect to the main office and get acceptable performance with this client-server application?

    i upgraded the QuickVPN client to v1.0.40, and upgrade the firmware to

    Location A: cable modem: Downstream 970k, Upstream: 334k.
    WinXP Pro machine, plenty of RAM
    QuickVPN client www.speakeasy.net/speedtest
    Router: WRV54g

    Location B: RV042, Firmware v1.3.7.9, DSL downstream 967k, upstream: 333k
    WinXP SBS.
    Connected via QuickVPN. Copied 78mb file down from Location B to location A via VPN tunnel.

    Total Time: 36 minutes (the good news is the connection remained throught the entire transfer)

    ***Can anyone state what the max (actual, not theoretical) throughput via VPN through standard consumer broadband connections?***

    i am trying to utilize tunnel to run realtime client/server app from location a-locationb. Unless i get more throughput, it's looking like its going to be a synchronized connection. Please advise. thanks!

    tbh Coolbean1000 it would be better to let the hardware of the two routers handle VPN that software on one side.
