It's advisable -and i used- to write these settings into the
autoexec.ncf too, i think. On the one hand it's simpler to check the
settings, on the other hand life is safer :)))
Approx a half year ago one of the patches (maybe nw5.1sp6 ?) set
"client file caching enabled" to 'ON' (the default). JUST THIS wasn't
set in autoexec.ncf...
Because we're using some old clipper-progs on ~100 machines, it must be
'OFF'. Of course the phones were red&hot in ten minutes :)))
There was a half-day mess to locate the problem and tidy up
(dbf-checking/indexing, etc.)
