[jcifs] JCIFS WAN performance vs. Windows

 Hello Mark,

We too are experiencing performance issues with NetApp Filer. 

We were thinking that it's because NetApp Filer has a crappy SMB 1 support and also because SMB 1 is slower by design but we might be wrong.

Can you please tell me how do you know that your windows client is using SMB1? Did you disable SMB 2 and 3? Did you restart after that?

Best regards,
