hi,
i am running NT 4.0 wkstn connected to a sql server at the main office about 40 miles away. i can access everything through the WAN at the same speed as the pc's in the main office, except one program is up to 15 seconds slower over the WAN. I checked for a bottleneck in the line, and there were not any. anybody have any ideas? thanks for your answers

I'd check to see what references the one app may have in its ini files, relative to name resolution. There may be an incorrect WINS, DNS, OR UNC entry.

Also realize that most WANs are slower that LANs and if this app is heavy client it will require more bandwidth. It is possible the WAN connection may not be able to supply the data stream as fast ast the LAN. You need to understand the specific network settings and traffic related to the app involved, check with the manual/manufacturer.

Hi there !!!!

Just to give you some idea....a typical slowet LAN connect works at 10Mbps while the slowest WAN connect (I am talking about T1 link here) works at 1.54Mbps....this is first...

Second if you are having Routers connecting two locations that what sort of routing protocol you are using can also have impact on the speed.

The last but not the least....

Speed is what you perceive on your Screen while Performance is what happens on the wire...

One of my client companies uses Win98 or NTWS to access a DBASE server ~30 miles away through a T-1, and the best solution we found was to set up an NT Terminal Server (w/o Citrix) next to the D-Base server, and set up the Terminal Client on the remote workstations. The performance is fantastic!
