I work at 8 different sites.
All sites are Windows based domains.
My laptop, isn't joined to any of the domains.
I connect to the local network via a WiFi network and get IP details from Windows servers.
When I connect to the sites WiFi, I've noticed at some sites it can take 20-60 seconds for locally installed apps to launch on my laptop, EG Firefox, Paint, Notepad, nothing special.
If I disconnect from the WiFi, these apps launch as quickly as you'd expect them to.
Reconnect and they take 20-60 secs to launch once more.
As everything relies on DNS in the Windows world, I checked DNS on the network,. and it all looks OK. There are no obvious errors in Event Viewer on my laptop or on any servers.
I thought maybe it's some type of authentication issue, wondering maybe the request to launch the app goes off to see if I have sufficient permissions to access the app and maybe the delay is caused because I don't have authentication onto/into the Windows domain? So I mapped a drive to a network share using my domain creds. This made no difference.
I'm at a loss where to look next.
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas?
