Slow Copying from WinNT to Win95 using IPX

Win9x workstations copying files from a Windows NT server may be very slow if
IPX is used. The slowness is not seen if the NT box copies files from the Win95
client. The problem does not exist in any other combination of OSs. To speed up
copying, set Win95’s HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\Vnetsetup\DirectHost
to 1.
