File transfer between xp client and share on 2003 server are dismal (slow).  I have two other 2003 servers (same hardware) that do not have this problem.

On XP clients to server
ping -l 4432 <server> works
ping -l 4434 <server> doesn't... (time-out)

All patches have been installed and the network driver had been updated to current revision.

System is an old Dell SC420 with a broadcom Netxtreeme NIC (on motherboard)
