XP & NT4 -slow opening files of NT4 Srvr

By n.morrow ·
60-80 user network - 2 * 2000 server and 1 Nt4 server

My client is suffering exteremely slow opening and loading of excel files from NT4 server. His ,is the olny XP machine on the network - and the only one with this issue - a second XP unit was purchased - same issue. The issue does not always occur, and apparently is okay follwing a re-boot but will re-occur.

SMB signing has beeen disabled on Domain Controller. autodisconnect has been disabled on the NT4 server.

Latest windows updates have been applied.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I experience the same problem here. I was wondering if it was my ethernet topology when someone at a branch office told me that she was experiencing the same problem but on a Token Ring topology. Those machines (14 XP, 2 NT4 and 6 2000) have their respective SP installed. My computer(XP) don't have (for the debugging purpose)any patches or SP installed. It's very frustrating and I really think that a Linux migration could be a solution.

THX all.
