I have a number of remote sites connected via 64K and 128K links that log into a Windows 2000 domain. These sites have three to six PC's in them. The sites do not have domain controllers on them. The links are frequently flooded with traffic. I suspect this traffic is generated by Windows 2000 possibly when downloading group policies. How can I prove this and how can I restrict the amount of traffic Windows 2000 generates?
I don't really have a great answer here... other than to use a network sniffer and see what the traffic is when the user logs on. As for 'restricting' the amount of traffic Windows 2000 generates ... don't do that until you know for sure what the problem is.
