| Slow connections
| login isnt too bad ... 4 sec. tops
| but its at least 10 seconds or more to access Samba shared Printers
| Directories. this is a 10/100 network using Redhat 6.0
This might just be a network card problem: check
with ftp on the various machines to see if the problem
is peculiar to samba, or peculiar to one machine.
In particular, use ftp to copy **both ways** and look
for big differences in speed.
Modern 10/100 half-/full-duplex cards are remarkably
picky about being set exactly the same as the hub
they're connected to!
