CSNW Does Not Handle Files Correctly When PBurst Is Enabled

by Wayne Maples [Published on 20 April 2004 / Last Updated on 20 April 2004]

Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) does not handle files correctly when it receives the packet burst in the wrong order. When this happens, CSNW and Gateway Services for NetWare (GSNW) actually issue a CloseFileRequest prior to the entire file being transferred, resulting in an incomplete file being loaded. A subsequent save will overlay the good file on the NetWare server, resulting in lost data. This behavior also causes the CSNW or GSNW open file (either a Word or Excel document) that is located on the NetWare server to be extremely slow if the NetWare server is on a Wide Area Network (WAN) and the routers are configured with Multi path.
