I believe this will turn out to be a VPN error. We have experienced
similair problems to both the IFS and to NT servers across VPN.  We are
using Cisco VPN 3000 from Windows 2000 pro into the AS/400 and NT. Once
we upgraded the VPN 3000 to current level and the most current version
of the VPN client the speed increased dramatically.

   While the File sharing speed was pathetic, 5250, FTP, file transfer,
web browsing and other functions worked as fast as expected. Only file
sharing was especially slow. (Sometimes 5 minutes for a 10K document).

   Hope this helps!
