That's a pretty wide open question. There are many things that can be
causing this. You say that one PC is causing the whole network to hang. So
what is this one PC doing??

Are all the PC's that are hung up running an IBO app that is waiting for data?

Can they do anything else or run any other app while this occurs?

You could have network errors, bad hardware, application errors, a process
running on the server, or a host of other issues to deal with. You need to
go sleuthing to find out what is happening to cause this. As for IBO, on
its own it should not be the cause of this.

Happy hunting!! :)
