I have a security system (ARES) setup running over a cisco controlled VLAN.
ARES is designed to run on the Fleet protocol on LANs 10/100mg links
Node 1 is the server and stores the Full Database, Node 2 is a workstation and needs Node 1 online to work.
Location 1 Node 1 running on a 512k link
Location 2 Node 2 on a 2mb link.
Links controlled by ISP
My problem is this
when a pure tcpip device (serial-to-TCPIP device) at location 2 connects to Node 1 there is negligible delay. And Node 2 gets message.
The problem occurs when the Node 2 tries to change/report on someting in the database, it can take upto 5hrs for a report come through ( an empty one btw) or upto a minute for a db change.
Using ping the trip is 140ms.
Anyone with any ideas
