It has always been my habit to set Win9x workstations' Browse Master setting
(in the MS Sharing service) to "disable," in order to avoid such a thing.
Even so, one station should not make the network excrutiatingly slow. There
might be more going on.

Subject: Major network slowdown today... Samba the cause?
Today, our network has been excruciatingly slow. I checked the log.nmb
file, and I noticed that today, the Samba PDC has been losing its "local
master browser" status every 2 minutes or so, for about 15 seconds, to a
Before today, this also happened, but only a few times each day.
1. All clients are Win9x.
2. Server is SuSE 6.1, with Samba 2.0.5.
3. Server is WINS server, which is specified in most of the clients (some
95 clients do not retain setting, for some reason).
4. smb.conf has server as domain master, local master, domain security, os
level = 65, win support = true
Any insights will be eagerly received.
