Hi

We have three machines on a intranet network with XP pro.
Other machines are NT4 machines.

The intranet use TCP/IP and workgroup WORKGROUP.

When accessing other machine with XP pro machine we have big delay time.

Delay time occurs on XP when :
   - Accessing a shared disk on another machine for the first time
   - When right  clicking on a file of another machine (for popup menu)  (sometimes)
   - When copying (ctrl+c) a file of another machine (sometimes)

Can you help ?????

THanks

Are there any Netlogon errors in the System Event log. Be aware that the authentication protokols of Windows xp and NT 40 might be different. The preffered Authentication method of XP Pro is kerberos, NT 40 uses NTLM. NT 40 and might share a similar Kerneldesign, bur the Networkstack is quite differrent wich might be problematic when establishing a link between those systems without a server as a moderator. Fun thing is that the Workgroupmodel might look easier but can turn up as a beast in a heterogene environment. Anyway I would use the latest SP's if possible. Also Time settings might be an issue as several other things wich come into play in your environment. How many machine are in your Intranet? Is there a name resolution mechanism (host or lmhost file)?

Here are some KB artikels concerning this Issues.

Seems to be a known problem at Microsoft.

A microsoft engineer tells me that next patch of XP will solve this.

Thanks
