I have a windows nt 4.0 server. The problem is whenever i access files on the server from xp pro workstations it is slow. The xp pro machines are brand new and there are 4 with this problem.
I have changed my switch and even network card in one of the systems. Printing thru a hp jetdirect is also slow. I have older 98 systems that are okay. The file that is the slowest is a lotus approach database file.
I have one xp pro workstation that does workwell and fast . I put one of the none working systems in its place and it was still slow. This eleimantes network wire problems or switches.
I have firewall tuned off on xp pro systems
I have web services off on xp pro systems
I have automatically search for network folders and printers unchecked on xp pro systems
