A fresh install of CVSNT 2.0.9 on a 800MHz Win2000 notebook. The repository root and temp are on a local NTFS partition. Only a small TEST repository (20 files) Trying to access this from remote Win NT4 machines on the LAN (400MHz, 256MB), using :sspi: protocol. Response is extremely slow! 20 seconds for a simple "cvs ls" command. While waiting I monitor the task manager on the server and the client and keep an eye on the LAN switch (100Mb ethernet): no CPU load, no harddisk thrashing, not out of memory, no LAN traffic. If I keep repeating the ls command SOMEtimes the response comes within 4 seconds, but most of the time 16-20 seconds. On the local machine, using sspi protocol the response is almost instantaneous. I had similar problems last week when I installed the CVSNT 2.1.1 beta on my NT4 Server: also 20 second delays there (in that case also when using sspi on the local machine) and I blamed it on the beta or on the slow CPU (that server is a 166MHz pentium). So I decided to install the stable release, and on a faster machine. But no go. Any ideas? Joost
