I am new to Samba, and I have a similar problem (Alas, no solution).
I have a 
simple test rig running samba 2.2.4 on FreeBSD 4.3  I see the shares 
from my Win 
98 laptops, and I can browse, upload and download to and from the 
server. All is 
cool until I try to send a largeish file to the samba share (say 
>60K) The file starts to 
upload (very slowly)  and after about 60K, the windows machine reports 
that the 
resource is no longer available, though I can still get files from 
the share and still 
browse.  Once this has taken place, samba seems to need a rest and 
after a few 
minutes, I can again upload small files, but very slowly.  This is 
all taking place on a 
local network firewalled off from the internet on the 
Any Ideas?
