Servers involved :
Terminal Server : Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition SP1 on a DMZ
File Server : Windows 2003 R2 Standard Edition SP2 on the internal LAN
Linux box (Gentoo) with Shorewall acting as Firewall in between
Has me absolutely puzzled.
Access from the Terminal Server to a shared folder on the File Server is extremely slow (more than 5min to open a 3MB excel doc). Idem to copy files ...
I have another server on the DMZ (Exchange). Access to the SAME shared folder is absolutely normal (can copy the SAME file in just a sec). Here I discard problems with the FW.
Even more puzzling. If I access from the Terminal Server a shared folder in ANOTHER internal LAN server, it works perfectly fine (being able to copy a file of several MB in just secs). Here I discard problems with the Terminal Server itself.
Then is something just about my Terminal Server and my File Server.
Discarded also SP2 issues (File Server my first server with SP2) because I can access the shared folders correctly from the Exchange Server.
Any ideas ?.
