Local Windows workgroups & Shares
Basically we have a 'server' for Cintra - Really just a 2.4ghz P4 box with 768mb RAM and XP SP2 on it.
Cintra then has a folder which is shared as a basic XP share and clients run the program file by running the .exe in the share.
I'm been told sometimes Cintra is running quite slow on the client machine(s) and I reckon this is down to the fact it is constantly trying to access the whole program and data through a share.
The interesting point is the client machine is in a totally different Workgroup to the server machine so if I'm thinking correct the client has to scan the entire workgroup to find the server and thus the share.
So would putting the client machine in the same workgroup as the server machine provide a boost in performance?
