Half the speed of NetExtender in a Windows 10 VM
After having my staff create support tickets regarding the speed of NetExtender on OS X, I started seeking a solution- auditing bandwidth management and firewall rules on my NSA 3500, tweaking the cipher suites, ect, and the speed to bring data from the office to a remote user over SonicWall Mobile connect was always disappointing. Then I had a “what if?” and installed NetExtender client in a Windows 10 VM on the same Mac.
Speedtests run through the VM/NetExtender are twice as fast as done natively through SWMC on OS X. Even old Java-needing NetExtender on OS X is faster than the shiny new App Store app.
Bottom line: slow app is slow. It works, but have patience if you have to transfer files. You’re gonna be frustrated. Which basically summarizes everything around SonicWall products and MacOS.
