Can UDP packets or broadcasts drop off or be lost after say 3 switches?? My
Network manager has suggested this can cause a problem with Netware, the
problem being unable to find the tree??

We were thinking of positioning read/right replicas before we reach a 3rd
switch in our network.
Is this correct??

At present our clients have a preffered server set, we we then going to
leave this blank and let them sort themselves out.

many thanks
