Slow File Transfer over Cisco VPN with Tomato QoS

Mark Berry March 5, 2015

I recently upgraded my Linksys E2000 router to Tomato Firmware v1.28.7507 MIPSR2Toastman-RT K26 VLAN-VPN. This includes quite a few default QoS rules.

Today I connected to a customer network using Cisco AnyConnect VPN software, then used Windows Explorer to copy an 40MB file over the VPN. The transfer was extremely slow, averaging under 8 KB/second, which would take over an hour to transfer 40MB.


Keeping Asterisk Traffic Inside the VPN

I’m setting up a new PBX in a Flash (PiaF) machine running Asterisk I’m testing it by calling in with SJPhone across a VPN (the PiaF machine is at a client site). When I dial 7777, I get my top-level IVR, but when I press a number, nothing happens. If I dial into a voicemail box, the * and # keys have no effect. It seems PiaF is not hearing my DTMF tones at all.
