The connection is probably idle for a while, and NT will timeout the
connection.  When there is activity, it will reconnect to the server.

What version of NT? what service pack?

Samba version?

Kernel version?


Any patches?

Windows utilities installed/running that affect networking?

You get the direction I'm going in....
