excessive network traffic

By MikeLazz ·
We have a satelite office with 12 Win2k workstations and a Windows NT server. Since upgrading the workstations, there has been a noticeable slowdown. The satellite office accesses the main office for its major program and the slowdown has been incredible. Are there any services on the workstations that would be contributing to this? Any suggestions as to what to look at? Thanks for the help!

You should use a network sniffer to find out what packets are going over the line.

Take a look if clients use WINS/DNS over the line, maybe a wrong ROUTED subnet or problem could be two or more 'default gateways' This will slow down a lot. Always have one default gateway, the other routes/subnets must be specified through the 'ROUTE'-command.

How many protocols? Do you have netbios over tcp/ip? Is your dns/wins pointing to the main office? How about browser announcements?
