We run W95 and NT4 clients in a mixed environment
of Netware and Samba on SGs. Netware is the primary
network login(over IPX/SPX). Am using clear text passwords for the
Samba network. NT 4 is patched up to SR 3.
Samba version 1.9.18p7.
Samba performance from NT 4 machines is VERY slow.
Many orders of magnitude slower than W95 which is
This performance problem is consistant. Even
copying files from the samba drives to a local
disk chokes. There does not appear to be a problem
with the browsing, but I/O performance, yuk.
I am running NT4 on Pentium 300s, so there should not
be a shortage of mumbo on the client side.
