There really is no such thing as the Samba protocol. It is the
SMB/CIFS protocol.

The information you have provided is insufficient for us to help you, I believe.

Are you able to get a Wireshark or tcpdump capture of the failure with
the newer versions of the QNAP firmware?

Ultimately, it will most likely depend on whether or not QNAP is
willing to upgrade to a newer version of Samba or whether or not
anyone has built an installable newer version.
