NetwareNtwrk/Win2K PC SpeedUpAccessIssue

By FpoppyHD ·
We have a Novell 4.11/5.1 network. We have started to roll out Windows 2K PC's. We've found one item to speed up browsing in the W2K machines, but opening Office programs is SSSSLLLOOOWWWW!

We did figure out in the Microsoft Networking portion of properties to turn off IPX/SPX - which speeds browse up, but everything else is ugly slow on every W2K pc.

Any ideas on how to speed the process up?

I am sure that this probably goes against your company's standards, but I have been in a number of different environments and all of them are installing Office products locally instead of putting a drag on the network by having the users load Officeproducts from the server. These products load faster from the local harddisk drive than from the network. It also has the advantage of the users being able to work should the network be unavailable for whatever reason. Good luck

In reply to the person regarding my question.... We do run Office programs locally. I am talking about through Netware connections, and Office connecting and looking for network items, such as the company templates, which would be more of a drag ifwe had to copy to each pc (which I am now considering), but also drive mappings to home directories for users, which the users want seems to affect it. We did find, adding some other information like "frame type" and some DNS information seem to help, but it still does not speed of how well Office responds on a 2k machine on a Novell network.
