    Hi

    XP is the fault,

    heres a thread about it.
    And I think the fix is in this thread.

    Thanks for responding, I looked up the references and found that they affect only servers that are Domain Controls, mine isn't, the computers are all networked by Workgroup. I agree with you though, it has to be something in XP that is causing this problem but no one seems to know what it might be. For grins, I will change the registry on one of the computers and see if that makes a difference.

    Thanks again.

    see this for a complete set of tweeks.

    setting ack = 1 is the wrong choice; you want a higher number to reduce the
    traffic on the net.

    Thanks, I'll try them and see if they boost my communications speed.
