I have an interested problem on my LAN. I have 2 physically separated
networks, which are joined by a machine running iptables. When I use
rdesktop in 16-bit mode from one side to the other, it is very slow.=20
The screen refreshes like I am trying to view a 1600x1200 image on a
14.4k modem. Using it on the local subnet is blazing fast.
Here's a quick hack up to illustrate:
eth0 -> 192.168.0.x
eth1 -> 192.168.1.x
I have clients on both 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x, each connected to
their respective interface. The problem is not quite as bad using only
8-bit color, but it is still very noticeable, rather than being unusable
when going across links. What seems to be the problem here?
I am also having this same problem with the most recent CVS version on a
different (much larger) network with 5 VLANS. The WTS is on one VLAN
and the clients are on the other 4. Each VLAN is on its own subnet. If
you put a client onto the server VLAN, it is fast and works flawlessly,
on the client VLANS, it does not.
This was not apparent in release 1.2.0, but only in the most recent CVS
snapshots. Perhaps something has changed which has caused this
