Sounds like routing issues between the two networks. It may be something
your ISPs have to figure out. Have you run tracert between the two

Are your speed tests over the VPN tunnel? Or in the clear between opened
ports? Try testing in the clear to eliminate the VPN as a possible
source of trouble.

Subject: [VPN] VPN Speed

I have set up a VPN between Denver, CO and Buena Vista, CO.  The Denver
is connected to the net with a T-1, provided by Sprint.  I have a Cisco
1600 router 
and a SonicWall Tele3 to connect and provide security and VPN services.
Buena Vista office is connected to the net with a 512kb Broadband
Wireless link.  I 
am using a SonicWall Tele3 to provide security and VPN services.  I have
tested the 
up and down speeds on the Buena Vista side and they range from 500kbps
700kbps.  The Denver side is getting 1120 kbps average up and down
speeds.  Yet 
when I try to attack from the Denver site to the Buena Vista site, the
speed is slower than the original 56k direct connection.

I would appreciate any assistance.
