I have a mixed Windows environment with Windows2000/2003 servers, and Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP workstations. When XP workstations are accessing the W2000 server shares it takes app. 10 sec. before they are available, especially if they try to for instance save documents. When W2000 Pro workstations performs the same operation they can access/save documents imidiately. The XP SP2 firewall has been disabled on all workstations.
Any idea why I have this bad performance on the XP's ?
