I am trying to access a larger (500MB) pdf from a VPN tunnel to another site. Using Acrobat XI Pro or 8.1 Pro. Initially there were some problems with thru-put on the tunnel which I have resolved. But still when I go to save the PDF, it takes 30-90 minutes to complete the save. I'm not expecting it to be snappy, but when I can transfer the file from one side to another in about 1/4 the time it takes to complete a save it is a little ridiculous.
If I transfer the file, I see about 2-2.5 Mbps which is consistent with the internet speed. Is there some sort of "slow link" mode that Acrobat uses which throttles the speed it saves files at?
