    Hi, I have a windows 2003 server domain with a DFS point set in the US and
    the UK.

    When I mount the US point fromt he UK and do a file search, it fails
    immediately. When I mount the UK point from the UK and search it is
    successful.

    Is there a problem with using windows search for files over WAN. The link
    between our offices is equivalent to a T1 speed - 1.56Mb/s

    Is there anyway I can make this work of is it just something that doesn't
    work? I've been googling around for info on it but can't seem to find any or
    my search terms just aren't right.

    Would apprecaite any insight anyone could offer on this.
