I have an application that allows users to communicate with each other. I use WinSock for this communication. We've recently been upgraded to WinXP and I've been getting complaints that for some users, they can send data to another user on the network instantly, but for other users, it takes about 30 seconds to connect. The application is not really processing anything at this point. It just hangs for 30 seconds.
Anyone know of any local network settings that would cause this delay?
I don't think this is a coding issue, more like a setting on the PC or configuration of the network adapter on that PC.
