I've installed BM37SP2 on NW6SP3 with 2 NIC (Public and Private.)
In the BM I've configured PROXY, NAT, FILTERS, VPN (client-site),
Access
Rules.

Clients are W2K PRO all patches installed, connected to a LINKSYS
switch/router. Novell Client v4.83 SP2 + VPN Client 3.7.2 are
installed
(IP only.)

When I'm using GW client, IE browser, PCAnywhere over the VPN, it's
very
fast. You hardly notice the overhead; however, when I try to map a
drive
in Windows Explorer it takes forever (1 minute), to open a folder is
the
same problem (30 to 40 s.)
Note that if I use the NetWare Portal over the VPN I can open the same

folder and download a file in a fraction of the time.

Is there any tune-up at the Novell Client level ?

Thanks.
