I had another go around with Sonicwall support with no luck. We
walked thought entire config of both units with no resolution.
I am going to try one more thing today. I am going to try a http
transfer from 3 sources. My powerbook on the local LAN, the xserve
and the test RH server. I will get a VPN user to download the
identical files from all 3 systems. I want to narrow this down to a
samba issue or a os x issue. OS X is part of the issue but perhaps
it's just the combo.
If that is the case I think I should try a custom build on my Powerbook.
