dos based app network performance

  1. is there any way i can boost the speed of a dos based application running on
    windows nt accessing files on a file server ??? the speed at which the app
    is fetching data from the fileserver is of about 800 KB/sec over a 100 Mbit
    network connection. other applications (w32 based) network traffic is
    substantially greater (about 6-7 MB/sec) so the network works just fine. just
    that any dos based application transfers files very very slow. the
    application is essential to my company's wellfare so abandoning it is not an
    option and yes, it is currently being ported (rewritten) to win32 (.net). the
    volume of data is collosal (about 1 GB to transfer to the "client" per
    operation with each operation taking about 30-45 minutes). the application
    itself is just fine, doing the same operation on a locally stored copy of the
    data takes about 10-15 seconds (on a quad xeon/2gb ram/6x u320 scsi raid 10
    machine). it's quite crucial that the speed gets improved

    many thanks in advance
