Hi folks, I´ve a big problem with the speed of an IPSec-Connection. It must be > 3MB/s and I get under 1MB/s via internet provider.
I´ve a new configuration out of the box and a flat network. The features like IPS or tread protection are all off.
For testing I build a test environment with a Fujitsu Server with 2 gig-ethernetports.
I downloaded a testversion from sophos firewall an made a new configuration. My sophos connect client ist directly on the wan-side (gig-port) and I´ve one client on the lan-side (gig-port) with a share.
When I test download a file, I get a speed in max 2MB/s, most time only 300 to 500 kB/s.
I´ve the newest FW SFOS 19.0.1 MR-1-Build365 and the newest Sophos Connect client 2.2.75.
I have a ticket by the sophos-support an I had two sessions with each session more than 2 hours and they took dumps but they could´t find anythink. They controlled the configuration, but everthig is fine.
Is there anybody who uses the same versions and use the IPSec-Connect with Sophos Connect? How ist the speed?
Can anybody give me an older version of the Sophos Firewall for testing in my test environment?
I´m waiting for your answers an hope, you all can halp me.
Thank you for contacting the Sophos Community.
Can you share your Case ID, so I can confirm what has been done, I was not able to find one under your account.
You can download an older version of the SFOS using by visiting this URL
Thanks for the Link. I´ll try today an older version and post the result.
The Case ID is 05707468
I tried yesterday a connection via SSL. It´s al littlebit fast up to 7MB/s, but nevertheless it is to slow...

Hi, have they resolved this yet for you ?
The case ist still open. I tried a lot with sophos connect and older sophos IPSec-client both on a SG9.7 and with different client hardware.
And now I know, that the sophos connect is 5 to 10 times slower then the older IPSec-client. I compared it with an older core2duo (older Lenovo Notebook) and a core i5 (surface Pro 4). With sophos connect I got 350kB/s (Lenovo) and 3,9MB/s (Surface pro), with Sophos IPSec I got 3 MB/s (Lenovo) and up to 12 MB/s (Surface pro).
I wrote this results to the support case and now I wait for an answer. Maybe there is a better configuration for sophos connect ore I can use a different IPSec-Client (other then sopos connect).
I'll come back, after feedback...
We still have the same issue our Sophos Connect Ipsec connections are crazy slow, we have a 300mbps connection at firewall but over vpn we only get 20mpbs up and 20mbps down
