Client: Win XP, Groupwise 7.0, Novell Netware 6.5 client for windows
Server: Win 2003 Server(File Server), Novell Netware 6.5 (email Server)

Problem: When authenticating to mapped network drives on a win 2003 server
an initial lag is noticed of between 10 to 30 seconds. Each subsequent
access to the resource results in a fairly quick response. However, if I
don't go into the share for some time the initial lag starts all over.

I troubleshooted the Win 2003 server and everything appears fine. When I
uninstall the novell netware 6.5 client for windows on the client machine
the behavior disappears and the performance of the network resource is as
it should be.

My question is what in the novell client for windows is causing this
network/ authentication lag for mapped network shares. I would like to run
the novell client for windows without experiencing the degraded network
performance. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
