| I'm running samba on several systems, two redhat 6.1 systems and one
| Solaris 7 system. On all three there's about a 5-10 second wait
| first connect before it logs in.
Something's delaying the authentication: suspect DNS
or WINS, and make sure the NT box is "optimized for network
throughput", or you'll have a severe limit on logins/second.
Or it may just be too slow (;-))
Looking at packet logs with timestamps can tell you what
machine is wasting the time: if you can't grok them yourself
feel free to email me.
Ps: you MIMEd's us (;-))
