Thanks for all your response to this post. Maxim Usatov pls do send me the PEP trial. I have also considered your suggestions and but would like to know how to calculate the capacity if satellite you need for a given number of PCs. Over here like i stated before we have about 70pcs, 50 of which can be online simultaneously.

Another problem i have ji=ust noticed is the high latency on my network. a roundtrip delay returns at >3000ms sometimes 4000ms.

An investigation revealed that a ping from my fast-ethernet port to the serial port of my boarder router returns at >1000ms! These 2 interfaces are on the same router (cisco 3745 router).

Also in the past week i have observed from my Cacti software (a bandwidth utilization monitoring tool) that i am transmitting at over 307kpbs (i have not upgraded to this service rate) whereas i am subscribed for a bandwidth of 256/256kpbs. I have reported this to the service provider but nothing has been done about it and besides the latency is still high.

On the DVB, is there a way i can determine the overbooking or oversubscription rate from the DVB box or is it only the provider that has access to such information? And what’s the main difference between DVB/SCPC and SCPC/SCPC?

I will send you an e-mail with the way to get PEP implemented. For a network with 50 simultaneously online PCs I would recommend no less than 512/128 or 512/256 CIR, if all bandwidth is dedicated. Of course I don't know what applications you use there. If I'd knew that probably I'd recommend some burstable quota as SCPC/SCPC or DVB/SCPC could be really expensive and inefficient in some cases.

I will provide you with more information by e-mail along with the PEP trial.
