How can I test Remote LAN (VLL) throughput

Setup your Remote LAN connection and make sure it is in a connected state, e.g the client end of the connection would say: “Client Connections: 1(of 1)“. From a laptop on the client end try to ping a machine on the remote Server side of Remote LAN connection. If everything looks OK, and the remote network is reachable, from your client laptop, follow the steps below:

  1. Connect your Laptop to the client BBNA at the LAN port and log in to the Management Console.
  2. Under Home tab, you should be able to see the client Connected status under Remote LAN (VLL) option.
  3. Depending on the number of WAN connections you have on the client’s side, the Remote LAN (VLL) will show you each WAN connection as connected to the server.
  4. At first, you can put your VLL in standby mode and check the download/upload speed on every single WAN line individually.
  5. In order to check the download/upload speed on each line, you can run http://www.thinkbroadband.com/download.html in your browser and download a large file from the website.
  6. Repeat the same procedure as step 5 for every single line you want to have in your VLL connection to the Server.
  7. Now, connect all the lines together and uncheck the VLL’s Standby mode.
  8. After establishing a connection to the VLL server, and download the same file as before.
  9. You should be able to check the aggregated download/upload rate on both ends i.e. Server and Client’s side. In case you are still not able to see the aggregated rate on your VLL connection. You may want to change the size of the VLL socket buffer.
  10. Under Advanced tab you can find ‘Add a VLL Socket Buffer’ option which allows you to set values for local send/receive as well as for Remote send/receive buffer size.
  11. You can start with a value of 500000 for all the buffer size options as shown in the image below and download the same file.                                               
  12. Repeat step 9
  13. You may want to drop the value to 250000 for all the buffer size options under Add a VLL Socket Buffer and download the same file one more time.
  14. You should be able to see the aggregated download/upload rate on your VLL connection.
  15. You can also change the buffer size on each WAN interface as shown in the image below.
