    Chimney, Vista and W2K3 Server

    For Java to work, our vendor recommends disabling "Chimney", which does fix
    web/iis issues related to Java, but it also causes file sharing and RDP to
    work very slowly, making it unusable. Below is the command I entered on the
    W2K3R2 web server for Java to work:

    Netsh int ip set chimney DISABLED

    I have updated Broadcom network drivers on both the client and server and
    that didn't resolve the problem. I don't think it's related to Broadcom, but
    rather Windows VISTA.

    The odd thing is that XP works fine and file sharing and RDP are not
    affected, but VISTA machines are problematic. I don't understand. Please
    help resolve.

    Thanks.

    It looks after I installed the latest drivers from Broadcom and rebooted,
    things started working normally.
