When you say "accessing the IFS through shared folders", what do you mean specifically? Are you talking about the old PC-support-style shared folders function that only accesses the QDLS filesystem? If so, yes, it's always been slow. QDLS itself is slow. Are you instead accessing the IFS through a newer driver? Are you using the AS/400 NetServer, so you can use normal MS Windows file sharing? You are accessing this via a VPN? Is that quick for non-IFS traffic? What about FTP from the same files in the IFS?
