Access 2000 Database

Bandwidth
I want to use VPN to connect my users to an Access 2000 Database remotely--from the main bldg to another bldg 100 feet away. I don't have much of a budget, so I was wondering if I could just use VPN and connect. The VPN connects fine, but it is very slow. I currently have a business DSL I use. What must I do to speed up this connection for everyday/all day use. Advise. Thanx.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

VPN should work fine depending on the number of concurrent users, and the size of your database. If it works fine locally then I would suggest checking your bandwith on the dsl line to see how much it is being utilized. If you’re using all the bandwidth then I would suggest you install a T-1. You may also need to check your VPN to make sure it is optimized for maximum speed. That’s all I have. Good luck!

    Thank you for responding. My ACCESS Database is 64 MB. It never grows beyond this because I archive it yearly. The documentation from the vendor says it needs to run at 100 mpbs. There are 7 concurrent users, only two will be accessing remotely. Will I need to upgrade to the SQL version to make it work as if it was being used locally? Or can I keep my current version and use a T1 for connecting? Please advise. Thanx for your time.

    Depending on the nature of your DSL (Assymetric vs. Symetric), you may be clogging your pipe. For a distance of 100 feet, you could almost just run a cable - unless you're crossing a city street or railroad tracks where you get into a legal wrangle. Just a thought, Bob

    Another option would be wireless. There are now products that provide bandwidth in the range you are looking for. Depending on your budget, this might be cheaper in the long run and free your DSL for internet use. I did a quick search and found a bridge set for $630 at the following link: http://www.wirelessnetworkproducts.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=677 rt
