WAAS-Branch applications not being 'optimised'.

There is TCP based banking application that is  running on port 7777(runs on an Oracle dataabase).The application is run from their servers at Head office and all branches are accessing the application.

We have defined a custom policy on the Central Manager for applications accessing this port-Full optimization(TFO,DRE & LZ).

When the application is launched on a user PC and the output taken from the central manager,full optimization is taking place with compression  levels of over 70%.The problem is the branch  users accessing the application at the branch dont  feel the benefit of WAAS-in any case it takes the same time to load the same application

The link is a 128kbps leased line-with an avarage RTT of 70ms.We are using inline method of interception.

Optimization for SQL(Oracle) is over 2 times on the central manager.

Any suggestions of what needs to be done to improve this?so we can have a feel of an optimised WAN.

It's possible that the application performance is latency-bound, so generic WAN optimization may not improve the end-user experience.

Would it be possible for you to provide a packet capture of the user interaction with the application for futher analysis?
