i try to confirm and compare my finding  on remote operation bandwidth usage 

after a good day operation on 6M  i see it used 70Gig data from 250 monthly limit  !!
so i figure it time to see how to reduce it

for testing i receive band noise on 1 slice ,95RATE  / 14FPS / 50AVG whit DAX 1 enable 
each test is 30 minute 

softether VPN  default setup               500mb  
softether VPN  compresion enable     397mb  
SmartLink                                          4296mb
SmartLink  Low Bandwidth               2093mb    
AnyDesk  (kind of Teamviewer)          576mb  


so assuming  softether whit compresion and 8 hour per day = 190Gig/month
and whit smartlink   = 2062Gig/month   really need unlimited internet  ;-)

did my result look good whit your own result ?

Puff, those seem very large numbers for Smartlink. They do not correspond to what I am seeing on my end. I will do some more testing and report back.

Didn't think DAX was supported over SmartLink yet?

it would be interesting Marc when your testing, if having DAX on the radio increases the network traffic at  all while running SmartLink?

Thanks OM

Hi Marc,

One more real-world data point....

Using just Maestro + SmartLink only over the WAN connection (No PC VPN, No Teamviewer, etc. in addition)
-30 minute test
-288 MB of billable data used (Verizon)
-So about 1Mbps
-95% of time Rx, 5% CW Tx
-Same panadapter framerate and waterfall speed as on the shack LAN 

73,
