I couldn't find the following key in my win 2kpro station. i think it refers to a win2k server having that key and so on.
But thank you as it was an eye opener... so much fun just reading about this stuff, rather than trying to implement fixes, while someone is on your back every 7 1/2 minute....
man, i saved myself from pulling out an ASUS m/b!
as i said , no tcp/ip needed in peer2peer on win2k pro station.
k, have a great weekend..
Slow network browsing on 98/ME is due to Win2K. Delete this registry key on your Win2K machine:
By deafualt, Win2K is always searching for scheduled tasks on any machine you network to. Deleting this key stops Win2K from doing that. It solved my problem of taking nearly a full minute to connect to my WinME machines.
For file copying, I use IPX/SPX exclusively for file sharing (TCP/IP is only used for internet) and those long copies went away. Perhaps someone can shed some light on why TCP/IP takes forever to copy between 9X and 2K machines.
