sorry I posted the same in the PM forum but I think it was not the right one, so here again....
I am not sure if I have the same problem with widefs like it was discribed. But one thing alerted me. I have a very fast server too (P4 @ 3,6 GHz and 1 GBit LAN) connected via a 100 Mbit switch to a client (Athlon 2000+ 100 Mbit LAN). WideFS Version 6.221.
What´s happening is:
If I start only the wideclient everything is OK. Just in the moment the client connects with the server (starting the FS) the client "blocks" (Prozessor load jumps to 90-100 %, can`t move or minimize the window). If I stop the server (stop FS) everything is OK on the client again. I tried everything (changing values in wide*.ini e.g. WaitForNewData, NetworkTiming, etc) it changed only a bit. When it ran "a bit" the Rx and wx counter runs "jerky" and the GC shows me 5 as data rate.
Looked in the log files (option debug) nothing special. What I could see is that the Server says that several clients are connected and the dataflow on the server is smooth and constant. If I start the client and server together you can see that the values for Rx and Tx are the same, but updated on the client only sometimes..
And now the interesting: If I am using a wide client version 5.20 everything is fine....(normal dataflow, GC running well,...)
