The problem is that i have some w2k clients, which opens a lot of 
connections (the nt4 clients, with the same load, just some connections)

the limit of the MAX_MPX registry key in the client and the file server. 
I've made this changes in the w2k clients, but i didn't know how to do it 
in Samba. Any idea?

Thanks for your help,
