Route Solving: faster on the desktop than in a web application

I have an application for routing oversize/overweight vehicles on a statewide database built from Navteq data.  In the desktop application, routes are solved relatively quickly; even long routes accross the state (average under 10 seconds).  However, we need to deploy a web application to allow the trucking public to apply fro permits for these vehicles.  I've created a map service from the MXD that I've used in the desktop application.  The web application is using this map service.  The problem is:  it takes significantly longer (up to 10 times longer) to solve the same route in the web application.  It works, but the time to solve is not acceptable.  Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should look at to try to increase route solving speed in the web application?
