login isnt too bad ... 4 sec. tops
but its at least 10 seconds or more to access Samba shared Printers or
Directories. this is a 10/100 network using Redhat 6.0
with Samba 2.0.5a ... everything works great Except for access
times. for example Win9x --> NT its relatively Quick.
Is this an Authorization Default that checks every access to Shared
objects ? security is all but turned off, null passwords etc.
should it be this slow on an Idle Network ?
PS. we are using JDirect print servers as RAW queue's ..... an IP
