i am using net use to connect to a server to run my client application. i have the following cases :

case 1:
OS:Windows NT or Windows 2000
NetBEUI installed? YES
Result : net use command takes around 20-30seconds to complete

case 2:
OS:Windows NT or Windows 2000
NetBEUI installed? NO
Result : net use command takes less than 5 seconds to complete

can anybody please explain why this is so? is there a way to make the connection faster without deleting NetBEUI? i need to have a fast connection, coz until the connection is successful, i can't do anything on my pc..

NetBeui is broadcast and is time consuming because it waits for a reply.
You may be able to change the binding order of the protocols ( put Netbeui last ), and this could fix your problem.

Why are'nt you using netbeui over Tcp/ip ?

I hope this helps !

SysExpert, on Windows 2000, how do you change the binding order of the protocols? (Sorry, i'm not so knowlegeable about these things)

Another thing, what do you mean by "Why aren't you using netbeui over tcp/ip?"

go to network and dialup connections,highlight the local connection, and then click on advanced-->advanced settings, this opens the advanced settings. highlight tcp/ip and then use the arrows to move it up to the top.
I think what Sysexpert is refering to is Netbios over tcp/ip
