Re: Slow VPN speed
Completely agree @atsak.
Unfortunately, I had this disagreement with the Fortinet tech. However, we do have an issue with our Internet connection. We are sorting out that before pursuing with Fortinet. I know there is a problem with our Fortigate for two reasons:
a) The problem is intermittent. Sometimes the performance is great. By this I mean, we get arround 12Mbps from our 30Mbps connection. During this time, everything feels snappy. Then, at seemly random times, we only get around 1-4Mbps and applications feel horribly slow. Bear in mind, I am benchmarking this with a speed test app with it's custom protocol ("LAN Speed Test") - not SMB or anything as chatty. For every benchmark, I make sure our Internet connection has minimal use using our network monitoring tool (PRTG).
b) As part of the ticket, we benchmarked betweek two local ports, bypassing our ISP. The 200E is marketted with 900Mbps of SSL VPN throughput. I could get around that through the firewall but only about 30% of that through the SSL VPN. I think this is false advertising. I guess if I was using multiple streams and/or ports it could perform better. But I feel that should be advertised.
