Lots of traffic between server and internet causing very slow surfing.
Posted on 2004-09-25
I have a windows 2000 server with Exchange 2000 installed. Users have experienced very slow internet surfing recently.
The network connects to the Internet via an ADSL Draytek router. I have shut down all machines and what I notice is that there are lots of packets being sent and received between the server and router. In fact the server is sending twice as many packets as it is receving. This is contineous and never stops
So far I have:
shut down all the exchange services
Virus scanned the server
All security updates have being installed
I have used network monitor to capture some packets and I always see the source or destination port as SMTP. Our Exchange server downloads via POP3 so I am unsure why I keep seeing this. Does anyone have any further ideas on how I can solve this?
