    Default Network Slows after adding untangle

    My Setup

    Comcast ------ untangle ----- Exchange

    After adding the Untangle box to my Exchange server users have been complaining that the OWA page takes a long time to load, I'm guessing that this was not an issue before.

    I have almost all the open source apps running on the UT Box and currently have the firewall turned off, the UT Box is in router mode and it's

    3.33GHz
    1 GB Ram
    2 NICS 10/100

    Why it is slow? Because it's processing the data through things like spam and phishing filters?

    The CPU usage rarly goes above 3%,
    is there maybe a command that would set everything to high priority? to to process quicker?

    What brand are the Nics ?
    And what version of ut are you running?

    (have you disabled the internal admin HTTP gui?)

    The External NIC is Intel Corporation
    The Internal is Cisco-Linksys

    I got this information from the networking config page from clicking on the MAC addresses, I am away from the UT box right now.

    I just did disable internal HTTP Admin now.

    Okay, I tried that and I'll see how it goes. I do have the newest version of Untangle though, it's 3 weeks old. Well, it was build and the ISO was downloaded 3 weeks ago.

    Additional RAM couldn't hurt even small load boxes (1-10 users) tend to eat 600-1000 MB of RAM constantly.

    How long is a "long time?"

    You could try bypassing a single external IP (your home or mobile laptop) to see if loading the OWA page loads differently with and without filtering. If its working right the difference should be in milliseconds.

    It stays about 300MB free of RAM and it take about 10 seconds for the OWA page to fully load. I'll try adding more RAM and see how that goes.

    Is there maybe a command that would set everything to high priority? to to process quicker?

    Well 1, yank that linksys POS and put in a real nic, that will help.

    2.) Do you have the attack blocker installed? If so it may need to be tweaked for the Exchange server, it will also highlight any torrent hounds that may be on your lan causing issues.

    Performance problems aren't an easily curable situation, you have to sit down, use the tools you have and actually troubleshoot the problem. Yes, this means work, and a lot of it.
