We are trying to implement a client / server application from a Windows 2000 professional workstation to a DOS PC running Novell Netbios client.
When the two machines are on a isolated network we get instant response from the Windows 2000 application.
But as soon as it's connected to our Lan (20 NT4 workstations, 2 NT4 Servers, 4 Win2k Pro workstations, 10 DOS PC's) the response time drops to about 8 secs.
The Windows 2000 workstation has NWLink, IPX/SPX 802.2 and TCP/IP loaded.
The DOS client Novell Netbios set to frame type 802.2.
