Terminal Services - display of web pages delayed 20-30 seconds when accessing the 'net

On a new Windows Server 2003 R2 installation, users logged into a terminal services session are seeing delays in displaying all new web pages of 20-30 seconds. Cached pages display immediately. Event viewer displays no relevant messages, and DNS is set up correctly for active directory.

What needs to be changed to eliminate this delay ?

Thank you,

how many uses do you have logged into the terminal server at once? (concurrent users). does the webpage go to firewall/proxy ?

I'm the only user logging in at the moment, and the server has 5 properly licensed CALs.  No proxy. Using a Symantec Gateway 360R Appliance , and all other workstations that connect to the ISP through it work correctly....

Thanks for your response,
1. Are there Group Policys applied to the Terminal Server.   I would disable any GPOs and see if this speeds things up.

2. Change the Default Page to Blank, Google, or Something.  I have seen the Microsoft default page slow things down.

3. Remove the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration from Windows Components.  This new 2003 application makes surfing on a Terminal Server almost impossible.

I was able to fix this immediately by pointing the forward lookup zone at the ISP's primary and secondary DNS servers..... I'm in good shape!!!

Thank you!
