Intranet application speed…

I have a web application written in asp.net running on a windows 2003 server. The application takes almost a minute to connect to the server and load the start page of the web site, as well as many other pages, before finding the site. This problem does not happen when simply browsing the web, only on accessing pages on the intranet. The clients are Windows XP Home or Professional. Any suggestions as to how to speed up the connection to the intranet pages?

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

Couple of things to look at.

0) Can you make ANY distinction between the performance and behavior of any of the client machines?

1) Of course is my favorite – the sniffer – so that you can see what actually happens on the wire from the point where someone clicks on a link to start the intranet application.

2) Are you running a domain or workgroup? Since you mentioned clients of both XP Home (which cannot join a domain) and XP Professional (which can), and they’re dealing with a W2003 Server, it’s possible that there might be some problem with domain vs. workgroup names, or possibly some authentication issue.

3) What sort of DNS are you running (W2003?)? and if so are you allowing dynamic DNS updates?

4) Have you examined the system, security and application event logs on both the server and clients to see if there’s anything relevant?

Hope that helps! Write back with more details,

Bob

    I created a host and lmhost file with the server names and IP addresses of all of my servers (remote and local) in it and the web pages appear to be loading much faster. However, now when I open my Windows Explorer and attempt to browse my directory structure, it runs slow as if it is looking at all of the entries in the host file before it finds my local files.
