I've asked this here before and wanted to give it another shot to see if I could do a better job of explaining my problem. We have two companies - one East coast, one West coast - that we wanted to join using a Multi Link PPP connection. Analysis shows almost no traffic going across the line but when we attempt to map a drive from the East coast location to the West coast server - like this, \\WestCoastServer\SharedDrive - we get incredibly unacceptable wait times when browsing larger directories and opening files. In some instances we might wait 7 minutes for a large directory to populate and than another 5 minutes for a small 500k file to open.
The line has been tested and retested, and as I said there is almost no traffic running across it. Experts Exchange has already helped me rule out any firewall issues.
Is this issue a limitation of Windows File Sharing and if so what other options might be available to us so that we can use files located on the other server. Terminal Services is not an option for our particular situation.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
