Speed difference between Windows 7 and MAC OS X running Junos Pulse 3.1
has anyone yet compared the attainable network access speed levels when using Junos Pulse on a Windows Laptop or on a MAC runing OS X ?
I have a Mag 2600 Gateway running 7.2R5 connected to 100Mbit ISP connection with it's public Interface.
Establishing a session from a windows laptop connected to a 50Mbit ISP connection, using Junos pulse V3.1R2 I can get about 1.8 Mbytes/sec downloading a file from an internal host.
Doing the same test but from a MAC Mini with comparable CPU and Memory and connected to the same router / ISP using the same Junos Pulse V3.1R2 release and connecting to the same gateway, I end up with about 430KBytes/sec when downloading the same file from the same internal host.
Less than 25% of the rate that is possible with WIndows ? Is this reasonable ?
I am using SSL as the underlying transport for both access methods.
