Is Shaw throttling vpn traffic?  I have been accessing two different company's networks on two different ISP's through ipsec vpns, and the throughput is horrible.  Although I can't effectively run a speed test as both prevent my internet traffic from going through their gateways (and a speed test to one of their workstations wouldn't involve Shaw), it has been taking in the range of 5-6 minutes to redraw a desktop (typically about 2-3 seconds).  Yet if I run speed tests to the other ISP's, I get fairly good results (in the case of Rainy Day it is actually slightly better than Shaw's own speed test).  I have used ipsec vpn's before without issue until Wednesday of this week.
