When linking a database to the repository, SQL Source Control is opening hundreds of TCP connections. I monitored it using TCP View, and during the linking process it opened over 1700 new connections (the green lines are new connections in the last 5 seconds):
This is causing major problems for our remote users, because our VPN limits the number of simultaneous connections as part of its threat management (to prevent DoS attacks). The result is that a database that takes 3 minutes to link inside the office takes 3 hours or more (!!) when connected through the VPN.
Is there anything we can do about this? Thanks.
