Question:     There used to be a maximum supported latency time when using CA Synchronous, I believe it was 50ms round trip.   Does that limitation still exist or do we now suggest it?s whether the servers/applications can handle the delay?

Answer:      That would be around 20000km or 12427.4 miles distance between the boxes or about one satellite up and down link. However, anything beyond 20ms is probably too much for most applications, meaning users will notice the increase in response time.  Initial copy time will be measured in weeks or months at 20000km and I don?t know how happy (if at all) CommandView will be while trying to manage the 2 EVAs connected to each other?
