Well as placed before, I have a problem with Win2k and Samba. Transferring files under Win2k on the client to the Samba Server is extremely slow. I have about  kb/s upload....
After searching at the web, nothing could help me, so I tried this mailing list. Of course where would be the guys that know a lot of Samba ;-)

Secondly I thought maybe NTFS and Samba cannot communicate with each other. Because I have a Win98/win2k dual boot system, I tried the same under Win98. But (un)fortunately the results were good (500 kb/s). So it still could be a FAT/NTFS problem....
I installed Win2k with a FAT32 filesystem... but that does not solve the problem either :-(

So, finally I have this problem: transferring files under a Win2k client from/to a Samba server runs _very_ slow (18 kb/s). What could be the problem? Or better what could be a solution?

thnx for any help.
