Slow XP server access

Q: Slow XP server access

Hi Folks,

I've got four computers networked together via ethernet and a router. One computer is designated as the "server" and all the important files are stored on it. The other computers access the files on the server.

I recently replaced the server with a brand new PC - P4 3 GHZ, 1 GB of RAM.

The server is XP Pro, the other machines are either XP Pro or home.

When the workstations open an existing file from the server, they often have to wait 20 or more seconds while the PC gathers the contents of the directory to display it. A similar problem: when a wordperfect document residing on the server is opened from a workstation, and the user attempts to highlight a large block of text, the hourglass appears, and once again, 20 or more seconds can go by before they are able to complete the operation.

My users understandably find this maddening. They never had this problem before when the file were served on an ancient PIII running NT2000.

Is there a way to speed up the network connection to the server and make it behave more efficiently?

Any insight, suggestions, advice and/or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Gryffud

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello! In our office, we have a bunch of XP Pro machines connecting to a Win2k server which is the domain controller as well as a file server.

Recently, it has been taking a very long time (over a minute, sometimes about 2 minutes) to log in, and we've had major trouble with the file shares -- often on one of the mapped drives it will just disconnect, and then when we try to access it, it takes a similarly long time to tell us that it can't (the local device name is in use, or some other error that is not true).

The worst is when using Office applications. Intermittently, Word, Excel, and Publisher files take about a minute to open, during which the host application is unresponsive (but does not use any CPU). At other times it works fine. Even when this does happen, I have tried using an alternate office suite like OpenOffice.org and it goes quickly. MS Office seems to be the slowest when opening.

Microsoft Access also - every little action we take, like setting the data source of a report to a query, takes 10 seconds to complete, as does opening any table/form/query/report.

As you can imagine, this annoys my entire office beyond what we can take.

The server is up-to-date.

I did some testing, and found that when storing files on a different computer (i.e. not the Win2k server) it works fine.

Also, if this helps, I have another computer that also runs XP Pro, that seems to have no problems accessing the server. What is different about it? I can think of a few ... Read more

A:Server access very slow or broken

Check your DNS I bet your going to find the clients are pointing to the ISP DNS and not internally -

First off since your running in a domain setup you have Active Directory enabled. Active Directory REALLY relies on DNS.

The best test is to ping a machinename if it replies back with the FQDN then you may not be having DNS issues but if you only get machinename and NOT machinname.domain then your in trouble.

Here is what you want to do. On the server verify you have DNS service installed and setup. Next you want to ensure that in the DNS server you have a forwarder put in place on the DNS server from your server to the ISP's DNS servers (probably what you have coded on the clients or you can check your router and get the IPs from the WAN section). Lastly on the server itself have the DNS IPs set to its own IP or the loopback 127.0.0.1

Once you have all of that setup I would take 1 machine and change the DNS to point to the SERVER only (do NOT add secondary ISP DNS IPs). Check login times and ping with the machinename vrs the machiname.domain.
With MS and domains you always want DNS to flow like this -

PC resolves DNS to server - Server resolves DNS to itself but if it can't then it forwards to ISP - ISP has its internet DNS servers. This way you resolve internal AD stuff but if the server doesn't know any internet DNS it gets it from the ISP.

Bad DNS can cause client drops, slow logins, GPO's not applying correctly and many other major symptoms

Haven't seen this anywhere on these forums - yet - but I just have to get to the bottom of this - it's driving me nuts. Or more so, anyway....
About 45 days ago, I upgraded my PC from Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) to the Windows 10 'replacement', which is Win10 Professional (64-bit). All went extremely well, no problems, the Windows 'upgrade' retained my settings, all 'mapped' network drives were there, everything was totally great. I easily accessed, created and and saved new documents to folder locations on the server with no 'hesitation' whatsoever.
HOWEVER... SUDDENLY, within the past eight to ten days, where I once had virtually 'immediate' access to shared folders on our aging Windows Server 2003, I now seem to be required to 'wait' for upwards of 8-10 seconds before folders on the server are 'accessible'. For instance: I'm setting up this year's 'fiscal year' folders for my business invoices on the server. As I attempted to create these folders, I had to 'wait' to be able to 'see' and then be able to access the 'Invoices' folder on the shared drive. Then (as I always have done) I 'right-click' within this folder to create the new folder for FY2016 and once again, it takes 8-10 seconds to be able to create this folder, but eventually this is successful. Then I created 'sub-folders' within this folder (IE: "QTR 1") with no delays.. But then in creating a sub-folder within this sub-folder (IE: 01-JAN), there's the same 8-10 second delay. Continuing on wit... Read more

A:Suddenly - slow access to server folders

I suspect your problem is due to Win 10 Security Authentication of connection. Once that has occurred then things move right along. Browse to another folder though and authentication happens again. Shouldn't be that way I know but from my observations this is in fact true.

We upgraded our File Server Domain Controller from Windows 2000 Server to Server 2003.
Share access used to be really quick.
Now there are a couple of seconds between access to shares.
If you are moving a few levels throughout shares, this becomes problematic.
Does anyone know of any documents that explain the exact process the OS goes through to access a share?
Could it be the new security settings that Windows 2003 employs add a few seconds of overhead to accessing that share?

Hi there
Why does Windows Networking always seem to hose things up ( Linux works EVERY time)

I have two computers on the SAME test private LAN one Whitehorse (W2003 server) and the other Blackdog (W8 Enterprise) both enabled "Shareable and Visible".

View from W2003 -- can see and access disks C,D, and F on W8 Computer

View from W8 - Networking shows the computer Whitehorse (W2003 server) but can't access any disks etc (or even its printer). PING even fails but W8 obviously knows it's on the Network because its found it. The stupid Windows diagnostics when you click Diagnose doesn't help at all --in fact I've NEVER found the network diagnostic panel of the slightest bit of help ever.

I've switched off firewalls etc while testing so there's no security rubbish to take care of while I'm trying to get this to work. LAN is purely LOCAL -- no computer is on "the other side" of a router.

Both machines can access independently the Internet through a Local router and connections are via LAN cable so nothing should be simpler. !! But can I get this to work !!.

I had a similar problem with W7 but it seemed to "Disappear" without me actually doing anything -- the proverbial "Ghost in the Machine" I expect.

Assuming this Windows 8 Enterprise machine isn't locked down with Group Policy.

This type of problem usually requires that you change the lanman server parameters in order to get Windows 8 working with older servers. Do these adjustments on the Windows 8 machines that needs to connect to the server.

Local Policies - Security Options

Set the Minimum session security for NTLM SSP

Hello there,

But after some configuring for the VPN adapter (separate adapter) I can't connect to \\server (that's server real name) anymore.
BUT I can connect with it over IP (192.168.1.200, static IP)

why not just pay the bill ?
if ita a domain youu own , then you can transfer to a new provider and they can also host your email - but there will be a hosting / email server charge for you on another host.

Assuming this is all via a domain name, what is your domain name ?
when does the domain name expire?

Who are you hosting with now - is it very expensive?
What country are you in

You will NOT be able to transfer the email address and all the OLD emails , just the email address may be transfered - the emails will stay on the current hosting server , and if you leave it to long , which you may have already done, they will delete all the emails anyway

Hello,

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Hello. I am a computer teacher with a tech problem that has stumped the top district techs.

I teach in a WinXP lab. My students log into a district wide network, allowing them access to their automatically mapped drive which they can access anywhere in the district. The main student share is on a centralized computer. The students have no trouble logging in...nor accessing their documents.

I have a special server that was established for my classroom for Photos, Videos, Clip Art and extended student volumes since the primary student volume is only 50mb for all students in the district.

On this special server, located in my room, I have a public share. Permissions are set very loosly so that everybody has read access, from authenticated users to guests.

The problem is that ONE single folder is cuasing considerable challenges. The folder in question is a clipart folder of 600,000 images. When a student specific authenticated user, or even a generic student account, trys to access the clip art folder, access to teh folder is VERY, VERY slow, if at all.

I have no problem accessing the folder (I have some admin permissions on the computers in my room). The district techs have no problem accessing the folder. But when they log in as as student all the way across town...or if I log in as student on the exact same computer I was able to just moments before access the clipart folder, access is constrained.

This problem has stumped me and the district techs for the last 3-4 weeks... Read more

Programs get up and running just fine, but I have transferred my files over from my old xp machine, and Win Explorer is very slow to access them.

I'll open a folder, and more often than not the thumbs will not be there; I'll then try to open or preview a file and I'll get the green progress bar over the address bar. This will often take up to a minute or more to run, and if I leave it be then the icons will usually appear and the files will then be accessible. If I try to open or preview a file before it's done things lock up on me.

After navigating away from that folder and allowing some time to pass however, the thumbs disappear again and I am back to square one. Sometimes the thumbs will reappear all on their own.

This problem started around 2 days ago, when I noticed that the loading of a game and general responsiveness of windows was slowing down. Then 1 day ago I decided to restart my PC to see if it would help, to my dismay it showed the windows boot screen for about 2minutes before loading in. Then after logging in, I would leave my computer (impatient) to check up on other things. When I came back it seemed the computer reset, after alittle confusion it seemed that it would boot up and then randomly reset whether it be at the logon screen or 10-15min after logging in.

I shutdown the PC and tried to boot with my Windows XP disc to see if it was something that could be repaired. That failed as it would always "freeze" at "starting windows..." in the blue boot screen.

Please be patient and I will get back to you as soon as I can

While you are wating for your reply please note...

Do not try and fix any entries that you see yourself (even if they do seem very obvious) If you do so the fix may not work as it should, leaving you open to possible immediate re-infection.

Do not disable your system restore - an infected/corrupted system restore is better than none at all, if anything should go wrong during the fix and restore is turned off then you could well be looking at a full system format

Please do not post in other forums while you are being helped here This is so the HJT helpers at other forums can get on with helping other users that are in need of attention.

If you are at anytime in doubt, or unsure of anything then please ask ! Dont be frightened - we wont bite....

Many Thanks - Dorian - AkA Steve

I'm having the same problem, but that little Windows trick didn't help. My computer is and has always been (yes, I double checked!) authorized to access the network, but it won't now. I think I accidentally specified a wrong path, and now I can't get into the server at all. Does that make sense? If so, any advice??

You have stumbled onto a year old thread. But tell us about your network and server. Are you on a workgroup or domain, router, wireless?

I am using a wireless linksys WRT54G router with 3 pcs, and can access the internet fine will all of them. I can connect to ftp servers that use the standard port 21, but cannot access one using a non-standard ftp port. I am using FTP Commander, and it appears to connect, but no files/folders show. A minute later I get the error message "An unexpected response was received from the FTP server. Make sure that you have entered the correct value in setup for your FTP port."
I have tried enabling port range forwarding (both while assigning a static IP and while using dhcp) and have tried enabling DMZ with the same result.
I've tried this with a computer running 98SE as well as with one running XP.
I know other people can access this server. Any Help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Samantha

Well, this has been an ongoing problem for a while, and RoadRunner support says "We don't block anything here at RoadRunner", so...here's my problem:

I can't access my server, http://darkangels-rs.com. Only very seldomly can I access the front page, with just the text, no background image and no little person icon that should be there. If I refresh, I get a timeout error. Most of the time, I get a timeout error.

I'm running Windows XP SP2, the site does not load on IE7 or FF2, and I'm using RoadRunner/Time Warner Cable as my ISP (obviously.) I've checked all my trusted sites, restricted sites (unless the IP of the site is blocked, in which case I don't know it, I think it's like 216.something.something.something) and even turned off my firewalls, checked their settings, scanned for adware, spyware, viruses, and the like, reset my modem, repaired my connection, AND turned off google web accelerator, in case they were blocking it, and no dice. Anybody got any ideas?

We are running Windows 2000 Server. On the server is a Q: drive called 'Public'. 'Public''s permission is set to 'Everyone' with full-control. The employees and I can access the Public folder through My Network Places (most people have Win XP Pro) or through the run command, \\server\public.

Here's the problem. One person does not have access. She always did have access to the Public folder, but not anymore. I can access my PC (which is \\networkid) through her PC (\\popc). However, I cannot access \\server through \\popc. What is the problem? How come mine cannot see hers, but she can see mine? Me and everyone else can see the server, but not her.

Through her PC (\\popc), I type 'ping networkid' and I get replies. However, I type 'ping server' but there is no reply.

Any suggestions? I would love to get out of this funk!
 

A:All PC's can access the server, except one

Try recreating her Windows profile. Are you able to access the server if you log in with your profile on her PC? Is she able to access the server from a different PC using her own login?

A:Cant access one particular server

If you can access via a proxy, but not from your normal IP number then it means that the website has blocked you. This appears to be a game site, so it is likely that you have been banned for breaches of the game rules
All you can do is contact the site via its support forum

I hope this is in the correct forum, so here goes. We have opened an ofiice in an old blg, and when we called ATT they said we could get a dsl line! well they made a mistake, so we explored a t1 line to much money. ok the people we rent from have a server, so someone suggested we do a wireless bridge. We are not directly in thair line of sight so is there a way to connect to a server wirelessly from building to building if the connecting bldg is 150 yrds away. Thanks any help would be appreciated or a site for help. There will only be two maybe three computers in use lap tops with docking stations or just lap tops.

oh forgot , we are using att sticks now , but slow and cumbersome also we are not the same company so w its two differant servers. Thanks again.
 

A:Server access

On the server, install a MIMO router which will have higher radio output.
Mount the router (at the server) near a window that faces your building and
set the SSID to something you and the owner agree upon.

Take a laptop with a WiFi adapter and stand outside your building and verify you can
get a good signal and connect.

Once that works, you get a Wireless Bridge (usually an Access Point configured as a bridge),
like this.

Once it all works (ie your systems have internet access), the MIMO router should have encryption enabled and your Bridge will need the key to connect.

My friend has windows xp at her house on a dsl connection. At her office in the university she has a newer mac. Is it possible to do a remote login to her home pc and access files through the internet. I know she has to have at least a shared folder. the mac has a menu to connect to servers and gives the option to enter an ip address. I think all i need to do is type in the address and then look at the share file. does anyone know if it is more complicated than this and will this kind of access be blocked by a firewall either by the university or from her ISP.

You can share files using the following methods:

- FTP programs
- Remote control applications
- Online storage and collaboration web sites
- Other options (vpn, peer-to-peer, instant messaging)

I have a server at home on U-verse and would like to connect to it at work over VPN. So I setup VPN and I *think* that part works ok. I just can't seem to access the server by name or IP.

At home, I have a AT&T U-verse (2-Wire RG), which assigns the IP 192.168.1.100 to my Windows Vista server. I've setup a VPN on the server and it assigns addresses from 192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.59.

At my work, I'm connected to the network over their wireless network. When I dial in to the server, it connects just fine. However if I either try and ping 192.168.1.100 or access the server by name (EARTH), it will not find it.

My ipconfig is below:

Code:

I realize that there's probably a million different threads with a similar issue, but none of them have thus far been helpful. I'm running a personal media server/web server. It's completely accessible from inside my network. It is also accessible outside of my network, but within my university network. As in, I can access it, SSH into it, play movies from it, etc, as long as I am on campus somewhere.

The catch is, I can't access it if I am off campus. All of my ports are forwarded, what I believe to be, correctly. As long as my computer has an IP that is managed by campus, it works. Anything else does not. As always, our campus help desk is less than helpful. However, they claim to not be blocking any ports.

My setup is through a DD-WRT v34-sp2 mini, to an apache2 server, simply put. I'm out of ideas. When I do a port scan, like from Shields-Up! it says all ports are closed. However, they are open on my router, and should appear open to a scan, I would think.

Windows 7 client cannot connect to Apple OS 10.2.8 server on our LAN.

A new Windows 7 (PRO) computer was able to connect to our old MAC file server (G4 OS X 10.2.8) over our LAN, but suddenly it will not allow access. We had a shortcut on the desktop and could access files just fine, but then it stopped allowing access (possibly after an WIN 7 update??). I can see the MAC server under Network Connections, click on it and see the group folder we normally connect to, but get this error message when I try to access the folder:
“The server \\ourserver\ is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. The specified server is not available.”

The Win 7 box can ping the MAC server just fine.
Multiple Windows XP computers connect to and access files on this MAC server with no problems and have done so for years.

All the PC’s on our LAN are in the workgroup “WORKGROUP”. We do not have a Domain.

The MAC server is set with a single group with members that have usernames and passwords. I even set up a new username and password on the MAC server to match the username and password of the user (admin privileges) on the Windows 7 machine. (BTW, I can connect with that new username and password from all our XP machines.)

A:How to Access Files on the VPN Server

If you have the VPN server behind a firewall, you will have to do some port forward rules (depending on the VPN protocol you are using) to allow devices on the internet to reach the VPN server. You should also use a dynamic DNS type service so it'll be easier to reach your home network.

Finally, keep in mind, you are exposing your Windows box to the internet via the ports you've opened.
