Internet speeds needed to run Wine Direct


Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of switching to Wine Direct, but am in a fairly remote area with Satellite internet. I’m working on getting a better plan, but right now my download speed is 12mbps and upload is 4. Is that enough to run WineDirect in the TR for the POS?



Yeah, that should be fine. It’s the latency that might make the experience frustrating sometimes.


um, I would have a conversation with technical staff at WD about the latency, and maybe do some testing. Better to solve any issues now.

Things are probably better now, but I switched from satellite to a good old T1 line a few years ago because the latency was an issue both with POS and with admin panel work. Highly transactional things didn’t like a satellite connection, back then at least.
