In reply to your e-mail from Sun Jul 24 11:35:41 GMT 2005, I have a
possible cause of your throughput problem with bonding:
Samba by default uses all interfaces present and so possibly tries to
reply by a specific physical interface instead of using the bonding.
Try to restrict Samba to use specifically your bonding interface.
The following kind of options in the global section of your smb.conf
would probably do:
interfaces = 192.168.0.0/24 127.0.0.1
bind interfaces only = Yes
Hope it helps.
