  • Slow connection to server

    Hi Forum members,

    I have a strange thing going on.

    I have installed a SBS 2003 in our company and every thing is working just fine..... (almost)

    The server is setup to perform the LAN routing so all the clients are using the server as a router.
    The server is conneted to the internet so all traffic has to go through the server.

    When users open up internet explorer then there is a slight hesitation before it connects 2-3 seconds.

    When users open files or want to save new files then there can also be a slight delay 5-10 sec.

    The clients are Vista machines, I have no clue if this could be the reason.

    All machines incl. the server is running all the latest service packs.

    Any help is appreciated as this is driving me nuts....

    Best regards,
    Kristoffer

    Are the DNS settings pointing to the SBS box? Have you tried disabling IPv6 on the Vista clients and restarting?

        Hi Virtual,

        I tried with Dynamic ip assignment for the clients, they got assigned but could not connect, so I ended up using fixed ip addresses on the clients.

        IP v6 I have not tried to disable I will give it a go.

        Best regards,

          Disabling Ip v6 did not improve any speed on the network....

            Is your antivirus scanning network traffic? That would slow it down a bit (especially if you use Suckmantec ).
            1 1 was a racehorse.
            2 2 was 1 2.
            1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
            2 2 1 1 2

              I would not think so, we are using standard NOD32 on our clients, and the same on the server, nothing special... Any other thoughts?
