  Hi all,

  I had a few months ago problems with my linux server running slackware 8 and kernel 2.4.18 with samba 2.2.0a. I could not upload files on my server at more than 220 ko/s.

  This problem is now resolved with my recent upgrade of samba to version 2.2.5. I had to decrease SO_RCVBUF to 4096 in my smb.conf too. Between my previous value that was 8192 and the new one ( 4096 ) my upload increases from 220 to 960 ko/s. Right, this is perfect. 

  But now, I got the same problem with the download. I can well download files at 960 ko/s through an FTP connection ( ProFtpd ) but I only get 300 ko/s with samba. 

  I already changed the SO_SNDBUF between 4096, 8192 and 16384 but nothing change.

  Has somebody a solution for me ???
  Thanks in advance
