w2k on nt4.0 network

By kashmeir63 ·
Hi,
I'm in a winnt4.0 environment. With 95,98 and a few nt clients. I recently connected a few win2000 prof. computers on the network. I noticed that the win2k clients are very slow accessing files across the network. Is there anything that couldbe done to speed up the win2k clients on a winnt4.0 network?

Check your protocol bindings and make sure that your only running one protocol or the most common protocol is on the top of the binding order.

Good Luck!

Live only one active network protocol.
TCP/IP for example.
If it cannot be done, then goto Start>Settings>ControlPanel>Network....> menu "Advanced">Advanced Settings. And Chek, then most cooomon protocol - first in list.

Make sure you have a configured DNS server on the network and all the Win2k clients have the DNS server IP configured and the domain name you use is set up on the DNS tab of the networking properties. Also make sure the NT4 servers have an 'A' record set on DNS

If you have no registered Internet domain name you can use something like office.local for your DNS domain.

Hope this helps
Chris
