Ultra Slow Win7 to Unix file transfer

June 2, 2011 at 18:41:37
Specs: Windows 7

I am running a Win 7 SP1 machine at work. This machine is connected to a SCO Unix Server. Our employees access the server for the purpose of storing photos. To open the proper folder, it takes 3 to 4 minutes to access the folder on the Unix. Once the folder is opened, all is well, and the photos transfer with no problem. It is just getting the folder to open that is the problem. It used to take 5 seconds to open the folder, and now it literally takes 3 to 4 minutes. All XP machines access the Unix folder in 5 seconds. The Win 7 machine used to be quick, but after several Windows updates, it now takes too long.

I have tried: updating NIC card drivers, disabling TCP IPv6, shut off firewall, disabled McAfee, replaced CAT 5 cable, replaced router, changed duplex choices, changed Domain Comp. mode, and DNS Name Resolution Required. None of these options worked.

To communicate with the Unix, our software vendor uses Vision FS 3.0. I realize this is old stuff, but it worked at one time on the Win 7 machine, and now it appears not to.

Any other help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated to speed up this process.

couple of options:

run a virtual box on win7 that emulates xp and run the software that way.
play with the 'compatiblity mode' settings in win7. I haven't had great success with this one.
