Very slow Windows domain login over IPSec VPN

Hi
I'm experiencing very slow Windows domain logins over an IPSec VPN connection. The AD is in Site 1, some users are in Site 2. Two Cisco ASA firewalls connect both sites by an IPSec VPN over the Internet.
I made some registery changes on the Windows XP client on site2 to let Kerberos communicate over TCP instead of UDP. Still the logins take extremely long (45 minutes). Profiles are very small, so there had to be a problem with Kerberos, MTU sizes or somethin like that. I already changed the clients MTU settings to 1000 byes, but login is still very slow. I made some sniffer logs...
Does anybody know what the problem can be ?
Regards
Remco

Hi Remco,
The most common issue with slowness over VPN is going to be fragementation. In general below are the recommendations to avoid fragmentation
1. For TCP traffic, use "ip tcp adjust-mss 1360" on the Internal LAN Interface on the Router. If you are using GRE then configure "ip mtu 1400" under the Tunnel Interface.
If you are not using GRE then the value of "ip tcp adjust-mss" depends on the type of transform-set being used E.g. AES\3DES etc, so you can increase the value of TCP adjust command from 1360 to a higher value. Though I will start from 1360 first for testing.
Also take a look at the below article for MTU Issues

  • Slow window domain logon over ezvpn netw ext mode tunnel

    I have 4 branch offices connected to a central EZVPN server in network extension mode.
    tunnels are working correctly but domain logon is extremely low (often more than 10 minutes).
    Do you think it could be a fragmentation issue?
    If it is, do you know any way to solve it?
    The errors reported are in windows XP system logs are the following:
         System     > LSASRV 40961 no secure connection with server, no authentication protocol available

  • 9.0 can a dynamic nat be used over ipsec vpn?

    9.0 can a  dynamic nat be used over ipsec vpn?
    we have a vpn up and working between two asa's and when we run the traffic through a static nat rule the traffic passes over the vpn. When we use a dynamic nat the traffic does not get picked up by the vpn ACL. 
    we are disabling the nat rules to switch back and forth so even when we use the same source destination the result is the same. 
    Am I missing something with 9.0 code versions? If i disable all nats and pass the traffic it goes over the vpn. 
    So it seems when using the dynamic nat statement it pushes the traffic to the outside interface without looking at the vpn acl. Please let me know if I am off base I am a newb on post 8.3 code. 
    Thanks

    I didn't do that at first because I remember reading something about in ver 9 to only use the unnatted IP because of order of ops. That seemed weird to me at the time. 
    Yes it seems that you need the nat ip like always. Should have just went with my gut on that. 
    Thanks

  • Trying to connect to a L2TP over IPSec VPN

    There are quite a few threads on here about VPN's and Lion, and clearly quite a number of questions. However, I haven't found one that quite addresses the problem I've got and I've now exhausted all my ideas and am looking for help...
    I have a hardware VPN server that I know is working correctly. I normally have it setup so that all connections have to be L2TP over IPSec, but currently also have PPTP connections enabled.
    At the moment I can do the following:
    Connect to it from a machine running Windows 7 using all methods
    Connect to it from a machine running Snow Leopard using the in built PPTP and L2TP over IPSec network configurations
    Connect to it from a machine running Lion using the in built PPTP network configuration
    Connect to it from a machine running Lion using Equinux's VPN Tracker 6
    What I can't do is connect to it from a machine running Lion using L2TP over IPSec using the network configuration
    I have tried a clean install of Lion and entering the connections. I have tried using an install of Snow Leopard that works and then upgrading it. I just cannot get it to work.
    Looking at the logs on both the VPN server and my machine I can see that the IPSec connection is established but then my client says that it cannot connect to the server whilst my server is saying that CHAP login has failed.
    I have been through all of the potential solutions I can find on here or the wider internet, no matter how unlikely they seem to be to my problem. I've ensured that there are no potential firewall issues. I've also tried every setting I can think of on both my client and the server. I've tried changing secrets and passwords, including reducing their length, ensuring nothing like Back to My Mac can interfere, and even starting up in 32 bit mode.
    I've now exhausted my ideas. Does anybody have any ideas, a potential solution or managed to get this to work?
    My connection is set up to use a shared secret and a password.

    I am trying to set up connection to PureVPN for security purposes and have followed their config settings for my Macbook.
    So how do I check the ports on my machine, as I'm sure it's not a problem at their end. I only have one machine so don't understand how it is possible to see if ports are being blocked at my end.
    Do I run that /var/log/ppp.log in Terminal?

  • Photoshop CS6 very very slow (Windows 7)

    Hi, im desperate as ive run out of options i think. Photoshop CS6 behaves slow, very slow.
    Even with no document open, right after launch it reacts with delay on any mouseclick, sometimes it takes
    more than 20 seconds before a menu pops open after clicking. Painting paintbrushes are impossible slow.
    Basically any action is dragged.
    Its impossible to work like this. With all previous versions of PS i never encountered this.
    Things i tried :
    - turned off gpu acceleration (i read that gpu can cause performance issues, some ppl solved slowness by turning it off)
    - updated latest nvidia drivers
    - reinstalled photoshop
    - tried to inspect photoshop processes with ProcessHacker, even when at 5% cpu it runs extremely slow
    specs :
    Windows 7
    Nvidia GT545
    1 terrabyte free scratch disk space (on C:)
    8 gb ram
    CPU i7 2600

    Has it always run slow, or did this start recently?
    What anti-virus are you using?  Have you tried disabling it to see it that make a difference?
    Are you working over a network?

  • After Photoshop CC 2014 update - Photoshop is very slow (Windows 7)

    After updating today to the latest photoshop cc2014 Version, Photoshop starts very slow and is not useable.
    I updated from V. 2014.1.0 to 2014.2.1 20141014.r.257.
    Starting Photoshop Needs 6 minutes (before 1.5 minutes). The menue and button reactiontime is more than slow, you cant work with this Setup.
    Is there a Problem with the new release?
    And please Adobe, dont tell me, my System has a problem. Did only an update on the CC2014 Suite via creative cloud. Old PS Version (2014.1.0)runs great.
    After testing a few time, I recovered my System back to Version 2014.1.0 with Windows recovery and Photoshop works good again.
    So whats wrong with the new release?
    My PC config:
    Adobe Photoshop Version: 2014.2.1 20141014.r.257 2014/10/14:23:59:59 CL 987299  x64

    The CC 2014 update  2014.2.1 is a month old and ACR 8.7 is two days old.  Something strange is happening to you.  First try resetting your Photoshop Preferences. This is a Adobe Photoshop User forum your not dealing with Adobe here. You seem to think you are and your attitude seems like you not open to to possibility that your system may have a problem. I think you may have one..

  • Very Slow VDI Client Login Time

    Hi,
    My environment contains two Hyper-V Servers for DCs, Connection Broker, RD-Web, and two Hyper-V servers as virtualization host to thin clients. All Hyper-V servers are only 35% utilized and all client VMs don't have a performance issue.
    After setting up the roles and creating the "Personalized Pools", I open the RD-Web, click on the collection and here it takes a very long time in securing connection part, then a warning message appears for the connection broker self-signed certificate,
    I accept it and again a very long time to open the VM.
    After searching the internet I figured out that I should install "PFX" certificates for the connection broker (SSO, Publisher). In my environment, we don't use a public certificate from trusted root CAs, however, we have our own "Enterprise
    Root CA".
    I then figured that I should create a certificate with the following attributes:
    Advanced Key Usage: Server Authentication, Client Authentication
    Key Usage: Data encipherment, Digital Signature, Key Agreement
    I created the certificate and imported it to the RD CB, however, the "securing connection" part was even slower than before, so I duplicated the "Computer" certificate, and configured 1024 bit certificate instead of the old one "2048".
    The "securing connection" part is taking half the time now, however it is still very long "+60 seconds" to open the VM.
    I still suspect that it is a certificate issue and not sure if I have done the correct certificate.
    Would anyone help in this case and providing the correct steps to install a certificate for the RD CB from internal CA.
    Thanks.

  • Time Capsule - Very slow and eventually unresponsive over wi-fi.

    Hi,
    I've been using my TC for some time now, but it was the first time I had to recover a file. I know it's slow as **** to backup over wi-fi and that it takes aaages to "prepare" the backup. Also I did the initial backup using a cable and not wi-fi.
    My question is: Why is it SO slow to browse and restore small files from a not-so-far-away backup, like, from yesterday? First, when I tried to browse the previous versions of the file it took aaaages to show the contents of the folder and eventually crashed while I stared incredulous the screen...
    Then when I tried again it took it a very long time to browse the folder (I went for a coffee...) and then another 5 minutes to restore a very small file.
    I know it's not supposed to be blinking fast, but it's borderline unusable. Isn't it supposed to be at least "not annoying"?

    Experiencing the same problem. Drag/Dropping a 30Mb file from my HD to TC takes about a minute. Tried about all suggestions and didn't see an improvement. TC is in 5GHZ n mode with only my iMac as a client. Speeds should be around 9 Mb/s instead of the 0.5 Mb/s I'm observing. I've switched off Spotlight indexing for TC, de-activated the Airport status indicator, did several hard resets of TC and put ACK at zero instead of the default value of 3. No major impact; my 30Mb file continues to be transferred in around 60 seconds from iMac to TC. I read one comment that TC might be sensitive to heat, so my next trial-and-error initiative will be to put TC in a cooler spot to see if this has an effect. I'm very eager to learn how to get TC up to 9 Mb/s and hope Apple will pick up on this discussion. I assume they're very aware of the issue as there's quite some discussion going on on this topic. One thing I also tried was downgrading TC firmware to a more stable version, where Airport Extreme v5.5 was advised. I didn't succeed, assuming this old version is not compatible with my Intel Mac. I would like to know if there's a stable robust throughput firmware version available for TC I could downgrade to...??

  • Help with Windows Domain Login on Mac

    Hello Everyone,
    We have two Mac Pros at my work running Mac OS 10.5.8 and they are attached to the Windows Server / Domain so when the Mac is turned on you login with your Domain credentials (using Win Server to Authenticate). Now all of this has been working fine since the computers were purchased a year ago, until two days ago that is. I turned on the Mac Pro in the morning and tried to login, and the Mac would freeze and do nothing. I restarted and tried again, using the same credentials I always use, but nothing worked. I called the IT guys and had my windows user account reset thinking that the password was expired, still didn't help, so I asked them to reset the whole account, still didn't help.
    At this point I asked a few of my co-workers to login on my Mac using their login info, and they had no problems at all. I decided to dig deeper into this problem and logging in under a "local" Mac account I went into the "Accounts" preferences to check what was going on, to my surprise my Domain account was visible (normally it wasn't unless you were logged in) and under the account it said "sharing only".
    I am still trying to figure out why my Domain account was changed from "Admin, Managed" to "Sharing Only"? So I decided that the easy fix here was to use a previously made (and tested) image file which I created when the Mac Pro was first setup and all the software was installed. So after cloning the image to the Mac HD I turned on the Mac and tried to login, again nothing happened. I can login using the local account, and my co-workers can login fine, but my domain login just refuses to work. I have also tired to login on other Macs in the department and I can login just fine on each one, the only Mac that doesn't let me login is my machine.
    I have run out of ideas, short of re-installing the entire system from scratch.. which I really don't want to do unless I have to. But if anyone out there has any ideas I would more than welcome them.
    Thanks in advance..

    It's probably related to some type of DRM (copy-protection) on the digital copy, and not due to it being any particular type of file format. The DRM scheme probably only works under Windows. And if that is the case, I don't think you will be able to get it to work under Mac OS X, short of running VMware Fusions or Parallels Desktop (or Sun's free VirtualBox) and installing Windows to run under Mac OS X.
    Considering the popularity of Macs recently, and higher use of Macs among creative folks, it's pretty stupid for the studio/distributor to make a key feature Windows-only.

  • Windows Domain login and timer

    We are binding several Macs to the windows domain here.  That really hasnt been an issue, we used Centrify Express, and that went fine.  Users can log into the domain no problem.  All the Macs were built with a service account (UID svc-account) similar to an admin account on windows.  Any user can sit down at a Mac and if they enter good domain credentials they get logged in.
    But when a mac is first powered on, and gets to the login screen, the svc-account is first presented, then after about 10 sec, a little arrow appears.  by clicking on the arrow, you can choose "other user" and log in with domain credentials.  Is there a way to shorten this timer, or default to "other user", or default to any domain user account?

  • Very Slow Windows Networking

    My department is running OS X 10.4, and we're networked with a Windows server for storage and job backup. One of our main backup servers is very slow. Logging into the server can take up to 5-7 minutes, and for a period of 5-7 minutes after that the machine logging into the server will run very slow, even when not copying a file.
    Now the backup server is quite large (almost a terrabyte), which is my belief why it runs so slowly. We have two other servers on the same network that behave fine.
    Is there something on my end (OS X) that can speed up the problem, or is this a server issue? My boss is demanding answers and our Windows IT guy is placing the blame solely on our Macs (with no evidence of course). Help!

    Google for "SMB performance". There are a bunch of discussions on macosxhints on how to tweak SMB performance on Max OS X. I have tried a few different ones, which all seem to help in some small way. YMMV.
    Apple SMB is not known for its performance.
