Using FDB over a VPN

At work we have an FDB cluster and I will sometime connect to this cluster over a VPN. Whenever I do this, transactions will tend to time-out more often. Sometimes the time-outs are so bad that I’ll need to wait a couple hours and try again later.

There’s probably not too much help this forum can give, but I figured I post about this problem in case others have found ways to improve similar situations.

Hey there, could you give a little bit more details about the technology behind the VPN? Moreover, do you experience it on all machines or just some isolated machines ?

On our clusters, under high loads we experience on nodes some network unresponsiveness (localhost requests can take few seconds) from time to time, but nothing like transaction timeouts.
