We have 2 servers that I use to store files on. I have excellent connectivity to one of them, but terrible connectivity to the other. For example, if I attempt to open a decent size (~4.5MB) excel file, it will open within seconds on the first server, but can take a couple of minutes on the second.
Additionally, if I access an instance of SQL Server on the first server, I can connect through TCP/IP, but to connect to the second, I have to use Named Pipes.
No one else in our organization seems to have this issue with the 2nd server. I downloaded Microsoft Network Monitor and TCP Analyzer, but, don't really understand it. Both servers use Microsoft Server 2003, and I'm running XP. Everyone else's OS runs the gamut from XP to 7. If anyone could point me in the right direction for what settings to look for, etc. I would be grateful.
