| 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
upon the
| 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 (;-))
