Had a similar problem here. When login on on a NT workstation, the bloody
thing was frozen for several seconds. In that case it was just like you
The NT explorer tried to open the connection to the Samba-share. This took
some time, because the system had to authenticate (via NT PDC). As far as I
know, NT explorer checks the connected drives every xxx seconds. The strange
ting is, that - as far as I know - the connection is not broken and you
don't have to reconnect. But this behavior is defined in Nt registry. So, I
guess you have a problem with one of both sides dropping connection after a
certain amount of time.
Unfortunately I can't remember, which Key in the Registry on NT was
responsabile for this. Sorry.
