Hi all,

Obviously my last question just wasn't tough enough....so, this time for a 
bonus ball...

What would cause *lots* of DUP ACKs / Retransmits on a LFN?

(10 Mb internet connection, lots of clients at site connecting. 80% + of 
packets going out to remote server are DUP ACK, 80% + of inward packets are 
retransmits. Effect is that clients get next to no bandwidth to server. Only 
occurs with work-related application server - they can access other systems 
with noi apparrent problem, other sites do not have same problem accessing 
same server)
