>From my experience, the response of the Win95 viewer is quite fast. I'm
using a 200 MHz Pentium II connected to a 10 MHz ethernet. Maybe you
have some other application taking up a lot of CPU time? Or maybe
there's some problem with the Windows display driver? Or with the
software that handles the connection to the ethernet? Have you noticed
slow behavior of any other application in Win95?
