Windows Server 2003 R2 - when connecting remote drives in a terminal session, response is painfully slow. Any recommendations to improve performance? TIA Gary

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There shouldn’t be a slow connection unless your DNS is not setup properly or your client is not registered in DNS. I doubt that its’s a NetBIOS issue, but that’s a poosibility.

    Remote connections are over the Internet - differing locations, connection types, etc. Pardon my ignorance, but, how would DNS not be setup correctly if these machines can establish a terminal session?

    That would have been nice to know initially. Is it slow when you initially coonect to the drive and fast once you are connected, is it slow copying files to/from the remote client, or is all access to the client drives always slow? How fast are your Internet connections? Are you using Citrix or Windows Terminal service? Finally, what version of Windows? SF
