Even though he says he will take a look at the router later, he really meant yet aga The latency issue exists because the server needs a second static IP. And for some reason, routing through ports takes longer and causes these delays/timeouts.
There are 3 solutions to this problem that I have to undertake:
- Upgrade the server software. This is a major thing. I anticipate doing this by April.
- Upgrade the OS to the latest version which supposedly helps with an MTU issue. I will do this this week.
- Static IP
If these 3 things don't fix the problem, then I will take a closer look at the router and its settings, including upgrading the router to something more substantial.
