I am experiencing a weird issue while in Beijing, China. I am currently at a remote location and need to access a database that is in the US. Although I have 2 megs of bandwidth, it drops to about 100k when leaving the country. I have an IPSEC tunnel configured on my PIX515e to the PIX back in the US. Ping times are around 200-300ms. The problem is that the bandwidth is not there so my data transfers take a very long time. I decided to do some testing and found that the ping times from my office in the US to my Beijing office (not my location) is also around 200-300ms. I configured a tunnel from my location to the Beijing office which is about 5 kms away from me. My bandwidth within China is excellent and ping times are around under 10ms. Once the tunnel is established though, I get 1200ms pings to my office basically making it worthless. I have played around with MTU settings, made sure duplex/speed was correct on all equipment, etc. and can not figure this out. Any help would be appreciated!
