I have had lag issues where;
- the color depth is different on the server and client,
  so you could reduce the colour depth
- if there is a hub between the two instead of a switch,
  you could try direct connection with a cross over cable
- windows file sharing chatting ,
  turn off file sharing on the two machines to reduce traffic
- routing issues,
  make sure that both hosts use the same gateway, and have
  the same info in the hosts file or DNS
