I am aware that Appleshare IP servers can deliver much faster network performance for Mac clients.  I have found solutions for Unix and Linux based Appleshare IP servers but need to source a solution for Windows NT.  Can anyone help?

Will my Windows clients be able to use AFP over IP as well?
Cooperative Printing Solutions (makers of COPSTalk) and Miramar have announced product updates that will include support for AFP over TCP. Please contact these vendors for more information.

The two company's provide Appleshare IP client software for NT, I require an Appleshare IP Server package similar to Xinet or Helios that will work on NT4.0.

Hi....
Are you sure you want an IP Server and not an ApplseShare Server???????
I've only used Xinet and Helios as AppleShare Servers.
NT4 is an Appleshare Server if you use "Services for Macintosh".

NT 5 will support AFP over TCP (AppleShare IP) connections. You can get a copy of the beta right now by joining the MS Developer Network. Be warned that the beta is really an alpha and massively unstable.
