I just tried a similar test on a NT4, W2K dual boot machine.

W2K 700k/sec both directions
NT4 600k/sec NT4->Samba
NT4 60k/sec Samba-> NT4 (gaps of several seconds between network

Currently I get poor performance when accessing an Access database from
but it's fine when booted into NT4! Both work fine talking to an NT4
So there's something strange going on.

I have a Samba file server and a dual boot Win98/Win2k client. Copying
from the Client in Win98 to the Samba server gives no problems:

(I copied one 6 mb file)

Samba server -> Win98 Client    550 kb/s
Samba server <- Win98 Client    500 kb/s

But then from Samba server to Win2k Client:

Samba server -> Win2k Client    190 kb/s
Samba server <- Win2k Client    18 kb/s

Because of the fact that I use a dual boot, I can narrow the problem to
Windows 2000, instead of Samba or even my network properties. I must
that I am new to this newsgroup, so I do not know how many further info
should give. I also could not find anything about this problem on the

Any help would be appreciated!
