DL385 G2 - Connection 100MB Clients - Problem

We are experiencing problems when connecting 100mb clients to our new 385G2 server. Transfer rates are very slow (less that 0.5MB) and sometimes the connection does not transfer data at all.
PCs with Gigabit NIC do not experience any issues when connecting to the server.
The PCs with the 100MB NIC can connect to other servers onsite which also have Gigabit cards but do not experience any problems.

Hi Chris,
seems like you should check the settings on both the NICs and the switch ports. Check if speed (auto/fix) and duplex (auto/fix) match on both ends.

I seem to have fixed this problem by changing the tcpwindow size in the registry as described here:
