My client had one site with 30 users.  He opened up another office 12 miles away & there is a T1 connection on both ends with a pix doing site-to-site for them.  He took 25 users to work at the new office & every one of the PCs use a propietary hand-written application that they use to track orders/invoices/inventory/etc.  The 2003 Server housing the dbase of that application is located in the new office.  The users at the new office don't see a change in speed but the users in the old office report a startup time of about 5 minutes.  Any ideas on how to get that speed down?

No.  It is written in Access but can be converted into SQL with some manipulation.

I think you should look at using a production database like Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, etc - depending on how much you want to pay.

Access isn't really a DB - its like a glorified address-book, and it won't support too many concurrent connections. Plus the remote connection using ODBC will also be slow.
