Title

network latency when hosting advice

Your post

Hello,

Can anyone give me any general advice on how ping levels would impact delay on client machines accessing a server-hosted DB via the internet (by filemaker network and also PHP API website).

Say, a ping level of about 50-70ms  vs 150-250ms

Also, bandwidth. I have 25 people who each upload and download scans/pdfs (filesize from 50kb to 8mb) several times a day.  Would a burst to 30mbit/s be sufficient without things slowing up?

I appreciate that the latency/bandwidth issue is complex and I have done alot of research/learning about it - but I find myself going round in circles!

Many thanks

Guy Willett
