I have my network setup like as follows:

internet > router 1 > ethernet ports > switch > router 2

I have a Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server connected to "router 1", but it is so slow when accessing a web page hosted on the server from a browser on a workstation connected to either router 1 or router 2?

Is there a problem with my network setup or maybe because I changed the name to newservername.local?

  • Don't name your server with the .local extension. Bad things happen, as the .local extension is reserved for Bonjour services. Change it back. – chrismanderson Sep 21 '11 at 23:39

This would most commonly be a problem with MTU sizes. Try setting yours to something a bit smaller (1450 or so), you can do this under the Hardware tab in Network preferences.
