I have been trying to find a solution on my own for this problem for awhile now. The problem is from any machine i have tried (XP-Sp2) Remote Desktop into the server is extremely slow logging in and launching applicatios, also browsing the shared folders or even the \\servername\c$ administrative share is extremely slow and most often then not locks up about two or three folders off the root. I have tried pinging from the server and the workstation that works fine. The server can browse other computers no problem and when sitting at the computer no slowness occurs in browsing local files or shared files on other servers. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
