Server is Windows 2003 Enterprise. Client is XP Pro.

When I map a hard drive from one computer(XP Pro), it is fine. But for one other computer (XP Pro) it is so slow. It almost has no response. I have to reboot computer. But then it is the same issue.

Thanks,

Here's a quick test: Try to include the server you are trying to reach in a hosts file. This will help you figure out if it is a name-type issue. I would also do tracert on both the working and non-working machine and compare the results.

Have you check for any DNS problème? Verify and compare TCPIP configuration on both computer.

Go to start
Go to run
type "ncpa.cpl"
right click on local area network (LAN)
Click on properties
go to Internet Protocol TCP/IPv4
in the area where it sayd "DNS" add the IP address of the server
Most servers are 192.168.1.2 (It will depend on the ip set by the person setting up the server)
