We have recently set up a site office on a 10mb connection. The problem I have is that Windows XP machines are very slow browsing the network mapped drives. The windows 2000 machines on site are working perfectly fine. It seems that folders with lots of files are the slowest to open. I have checked the basics such as DNS. The XP machines are able to open the files at full speed. It is just the browsing of directories that is causing problems.
I thought that there may be some setting in XP which could be affecting this.
- XP Pro machines have the latest service packs
- Server running 2003 SBS
- Site office is on a seperate subnet
- Same problem when browsing directly to server
