LONG VPN reconnect times (plus VPN VERY slow) - PLEASE HELP

    I have set up 2 Win2K3 servers (as VPN routers) for connecting two offices
    based upon the article:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnw2kmag00/html/VPN.asp
    When they are connected, they work fine. The problem I am having is that the
    VPN routers are taking 30 - 60 minutes to reconnect. Additionally, I am
    constantly being asked if there is anything that can be done to speed up the
    connection.

    Can anyone offer suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Hi CH,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    What is your meaning of "VPN routers are taking 30 - 60 minutes to
    reconnect"? Do you mean it happens when create VPN connection or reconnect
    after VPN disconnected? Is there any related error message in Event logs on
    two servers?

    I would like to recommend that you refer to the following two documents to
    create Site-to-Site VPN Connection.
