Slow linux-win98-samba connection

Slow linux-win98-samba connection

Post by Gerhard Siegesmu » Sun, 09 May 1999 04:00:00

Hello all

I don't know what I am doing wrong. Some people are talking about slow
connections at 250kb/s. My configuration beats them all. I just have
10kb/s if I send files to a win98-computer using smbclient.
I am using version 2.0.3 of Samba and a glibc-2.0.6-System with Linux
2.2.6. I tried some things given in file speed.txt and speed2.txt, but
couldn't find anything that improves the speed of the connect. It works
great in the other direction (with mget). But mput is really slow. Any

1. Samba connection slow in Linux-Win98 LAN

Hi. I have the following situation:
I installed a few days ago Redhat 7.1 in a pentium 233mhz/64megs RAM.
As I have alos in the same computer win2000 and win98 I downloaded a
new kernel an compiled with compatibility with NTFS and VFAT. I did
not forget to put SMB compatibility. I set up a little network with my
other computer: A win98/SE Pentium III/256 Ram. I setup Samba and it
works and all connections are at a fair speed (from Linux to win98
using "cp file /mnt/nhda1/file", from win98 to linux using the tools
in Windows and form linux to win98 also using the tools in Windows),
except when I try to copy one file from win98 to linux using linux: cp
/mnt/nhda1/file file. The transfer rate is so slow that it takes more
than 5 minutes to copy it.

I mount the file system in this way:
smbmount //Nuevo/C_Nuevo /mnt/nhda1 -o guest
Although I don't think the problem is in my smb.conf, I attach it
