Office XP hangs saving to network drive

By tech_know ·
I have Office XP installed on Windows 2000 machines. I am running Novell 5.1 as the server OS. When some of my users try to save to a network drive, their PC freezes and they eventually have to shut their PC down. They have all the latest Windowsand Office patches applied. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Office XP hangs saving to network drive

It is very important that you be using the latest Netware client software (4.83, w/SP1, http://download.novell.com). I also recommend that you install it in sigle protocol mode (IP or IPX, which ever is appropriate for your environment). Disable client-side caching.

A visit to http://www.ithowto.com will yeild some hints on how to make the novell client even faster.

Sorry - this did not help. All patches are applied. If disable the CDRW it doesn't happen.

In addition to what Bud has to say, there is a patch to apply after 4.83SP1, that deals with opening multiple files in XP. See: TID #: 2963384
