We are in the process of setting up an Amazon S3 network backup of the NAS server we have in our office. We are using a Synology NAS to backup to Amazon s3, and we use a Cisco PIX 501 to secure our network. The backup from the NAS to Amazon is going painfully slow, so I contacted Synology to resolve the issue. After they examined everything, they think the router is filtering outbound traffic, and this is causing the upload to slow down. I was told the upload should happen over HTTP and HTTPS, and I made sure these ports where open through the Access Rules. There are no rules defined in the Filter Settings. I looked at the settings with the PDM, and I can't find where the filtering would be. Does someone have any insight to what could be happening? I'm not too familiar with the PIX or all the network settings involved. Thanks!
