Hi, i have tried many things but i cant seem to be able to fix this. I have a OSX Server on a Mac Mini and my clients are mostly IMAC's with Parallels and Windows XP to. I have no choice to use Windows because of my accounting software... When i my accounting software trying to connect to the server's data just identifying the username in the software takes about 20 seconds... i have no idea why it is sooo slow and how can i change this! My OS X Server version 10.6.8 4gb and 2 x 500gb disks! Somebody can help me? thanks William!
