WIN2k SAmba file transfer speed issue > dead! 8)

after help from a  few good sambanites I think i have come up with a global
that just rocks file transfer speed wise from a samba 2.07 server to a win2k
client. Before these lines I was transferring 2meg files in an hour (form
the samba server to a win2k client) now I am transfrerring gigabytes in very
very little time, much faster than file transfers from a wn2k cliemt to a
win2k server even in a switched network!

here is the global, the last seven lines are the good ones:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = MYDRAGONFLY
        netbios name = GENIE
        server string = Samba Server
        security = user
        status = yes
        log file = /var/log/log.%m
        log level = 1
        wins server = (this is the samba servers internal nic
IP) (multi homed nat box)
        max log size = 50
        socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
        domain logons = Yes
        preferred master = Yes
        login script = scripts\%U.bat
        dns proxy = No
        domain admin group = @mdf (an user group for high access admins)
        homedir map = /usr/home/~
        hosts allow =  (my ip's).
        encrypt passwords = yes  ( yep win2k needs them)
        max xmit = 65535 (yes 65535 the limit)
        strict sync = no (yep a biggie)
        strict locking = no (another biggie)
        hide files = no
        read raw = yes (big time help)
        write raw = yes (this one too)
        oplocks = yes
        dead time = 15 (default is zero)

this is the config that has rocked me win2k file transfer speed wise

Enjoy peoples,
