Clients take forever to find server when server firewall is enabled
Posted on 2008-06-20
I have set up a small business server with 4 client pcs.
If the server firewall is enabled then the clients take a very long time to find the server to log on, they also take a long time to log in and some shares are not readily available. Obviously the firewall is very important so I need urgent help to resolve this one.
DHCP is performed by a netgear router. The server IP is static.
Do I need to add an entry in the client host files?
Help appreciated as always.
