    Question Software to manage a T1 link between two offices

    1st~This might not be the correct place to start this but its a start. We have 2 offices in 2 cities and they want to use one server (mine). (12 cad stations) We talked about a T1 line etc and from what I gather the software to manage this is incredibly expensive. Someone mented Vault. Would this work and where is there literature for this. We use LDT, we are a Civil Engineering firm. Any help or a point in the right direction is appreciated.

    You don't *need* Vault. To the best of my knowledge, Vault is a document management system originally designed to work with mechanical packages (MDT, Inventor), that Autodesk has *tried* to make work with Civil 3D. I don't know of anyone using it with LDT.

    That is really beside the point, unless you are talking about document management systems. It sounds like you are talking about management of a WAN instead. Your T1 vendor should be able to answer those questions. Keep in mind that even with a T1, working in LDT across a WAN may not meet your requirements for a satisfactory work environment. (It may still be too slow....)

    We (and many other people I found out) are running Riverbed "Steelhead" network acceleration appliances. These appliances optimize and cache network traffic, resulting in a performance gain as high as 10X. If it used to take 50 seconds to open a project drawing, it may take 5 seconds now... Of course this benefit applies to all network traffic, not just AutoCAD.

    What's to manage? The T1 connection or the files between the two locations? If all the files or in the same place and there's no software to manage them from one location now, there's no need for software to manage them when you add a second location. The issue is if you have replicated copies of the data in a second location. There IS software to manage this and this is done, for people who want network performance for theor other locations to be the same and not slower because of the remote connection. This can be done in a variety or ways from anywhere between free and tend of thousands of dollars depending on your needs.
