We have 2 branch locations, one is BranchA and the other is BranchB.
I'm trying troubleshoot a file transfer issue we're experiencing and have noticed the following.

- Using a Windows 8.1 PC in BranchA, if I copy a 100MB file from the Desktop onto the C:\ of a Windows 7 PC in BranchB, it takes 25sec.

- Using a Windows 8.1 PC in BranchA, if I copy a 100MB file from the Desktop onto the C:\ of Server 2003 in BranchB, it takes 39sec.

- Using Windows 7 in BranchA, if I copy the 100MB file from the Desktop onto the C:\ of Server 2003 in BranchB, it takes 51sec.

- Using Server 2008 in BranchA, if I copy the 100MB file from the Desktop onto the C:\ of Server 2003 in BranchB, it takes 58sec.

- Using Windows 7 in BranchB, if I copy the 100MB file from the Desktop onto the C:\ of the WIndows 8.1 PC in BranchA, it takes 58sec.

- From Server 2003 in BranchB, browse to the Desktop of the Windows 8.1 PC in BranchA and copying/pasting the 100MB file onto the Server 2003 Desktop, it takes 1min 15sec.

- From Server 2003 in BranchB, browse to the Desktop of the Windows 7 PC in BranchA and copying/pasting the 100MB file onto the Server 2003 Desktop, it takes 1min 33sec.

Are there any settings or adjustments that can be made on Server 2003 and/or 2008 so that it doesn't take as long to send/receive files?

Any help would be appreciated.
