First of all, please excuse my english. I usually speak french. I also don't have the skills to explain why the fix my IT department found for the CIFS problem works. Anyway, here it is:

I am using Alfresco 1.4.0, running on WinXP Pro SP1. It is serving a network of 12 PCs running Win XP Pro or Win 2000 Pro.

From what my IT guy told me, the fix is fairly simple.
He just disabled the server adapter "QoS Packet Scheduler", "File and Printer Sharing" and unchecked "Activate LMHOSTS search" in the TCP/IP options dialog box.

If it works for some of you, i'd really like someone to explain WHY this works, as I am not skilled enough to have a clue!
