Very bad performance when copying large files from window s to samba-share

Yes, that's normal. the NBSS messages are the continuation data that does
not fit into the first SMB Write packet. If you total their sizes,
subtracting header information, the result will be equal to the Write Count
stated in the SMB WriteRaw request which is sent in the beginning.

Hi !

Sorry for being late.

I did the ethereal-capturing. What looks very strange on first sight: About
6 of 10 packest are described as: NBSS Continuation Message.
Sometimes there are 6 of them one after another.
Is this normal ?
