Depends on their config. Might be throttling you. But most likely they are
choking on their end.

Hey folks.

 

I've another strange issue that seems to have me stumped, albeit only over a
WAN (ADSL) connection. Note that I do not see this on the LAN.

 

When someone opens an image via RDP or ICA, you can see the image painting
itself incredibly slow. While this is occurring, you can not click on any
other part of the session (locked up, for all intensive purposes) until the
picture has rendered fully. Now, this is the sick part:

I bet you can guess when I'm downloading the image to my client, huh? 

 

Ping times are great, until this. This is on off hours, when no bandwidth is
being used by people in-house, so I can't see saturation being an issue. The
traceroute indicates the latency starts right AT their router, and nowhere
in the upstream's backbone.

 

Now, I'm pretty certain this problem isn't on my end, because I'm on a DS3
that's using hardly any of the load. ;p

 

Likewise, clients from other sites are complaining about it. 

 

. So, eh?
