I have a NT4.0 server with domain name home01 connected to a linksys router using router as dhcp. 1-win 2000pro connected to router as a member of domain. 1-NT4.0 wrkstation connected to linksys and 1-WIN 98 connected to linksys. All are members of domain.
I have drives mapped to all pc's. when I copy from wk2 pc to nt4.0 wks, copy is fine. when I copy nt4.0 ser to nt4.0 wks copy is fine. when I copy win 2000pro to nt4.0 wks copy is fine. when I copy from win 2000pro to nt4.0 server copy is very-slow, 20 seconds copy takes 12 minutes, sometimes error message appears file attributes lost or copying dialogues just continues. I have seen event id 3013, with computer name of win 2000 pro workstation rdr timeout. Does anyone know what is causing this?

I don't really have much to offer here except to ask whether you looked up the Event ID 3013. There are a couple of articles that may be relevant in Microsoft's Knowledge Base:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;252332

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;319122

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;148426

Given the inconsistencies you are seeing while copying between different combinations of computers, I don't know if any of these will help. However, I hope they might give you some ideas.

That is fine. I understand the point system can be confusing initially and my comment didn't offer a lot of help anyway.

Install and configure WINS on the NT server - set your clients up to use it.  Also, it would be most beneficial to give the server a static IP address.  Something NOT in the scope of the Linksys DHCP but still on the same network - or add the exclusion to the DHCP database.

I think the issue revolves around resolution - your server for the domain should be static.

Ensure NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled on the W2k Pro PC and, if you go with the WINS idea, set this box up to use it.  Otherwise, populate the HOSTS and LMHOSTS files on the W2K Pro PC with the other machines.

Your better solution would be WINS - Windows 2000 uses DNS for resolution so I suspect an inordinate amount of broadcasting by the W2K Pro PC.

Netman66,

Did exactly as you suggested, went with wins solution.
added static ip's to hosts and lmhosts.

try filecopy with same results.

I personally think it's the server trying to synchronize roaming profiles. But not sure. Every thing was working great for over two years. One of my kids installed kazaa I uninstalled it a day later. my win 2000 pro has not been the same. It works great with other pc's, it's just the server. Server works great with other pc also.
Can't put my finger on it. Any other suggestions will be appreciated.

Have you tried running something like SpyBot or Ad-Aware to see if there is some spyware gumming up the works?

Also, a full AV scan with the latest definitions might be in order - both on W2k and NT Server.

Since it only appears to occurs between W2K Pro and NT Server I am doubtful you'll find much.

Here is something to take a look at:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;148426

This sounds like the NT Server has the problem.  

Perhaps try updating the network card drivers if there is an update.

Advise.

I regularly run Ad-Aware & PestPatrol on all pc's. I have PestPatrol continously running. pc's are clean.

I already tried reloading the current driver of the nic card. An older version and If I could find applied a new driver to the nic card. No success.
Here is a new twist, I have the nt4.0w and nt4.0s mapped to the w2k. I tried copy between both nt's on w2k and the same symptons occur.
I will try a full AV scan when I get home tonite.

Thanks, I appreciate the suggestions.

Follow-up to previous message, performed a full AV scan,
same symptons still exist.
In reference to ms link, I had reference every article.
Try some that made some sense without success.
