| I've posted a couple of times about this problem.

| The short problem is that logging on and logging off

| profile (~1MB), on a 100Mb LAN.
| If anyone has any suggestions or pointers or 
| questions, *please* pipe up. I'm all out of ideas.

In the past it was always some detail of network
configuration that caused such problems. Your WINS is
not correctly set up, your DNS is not correctly set up,
your wires are leaky or pass by big electric motors,

Try it another way. Connect just one client with your
server with a crossed cable. Do you still have the
problem? Then do some ethereal sniff and see what is
causing it. Else, connect more clients via a switch.
What happens then? Etc. It's always network.
