I have a p100 server that comes up very quickly - i suspect a network

Do you have a firewall set up ?
You might be disallowing connections on 445 thus causing a timeout and
reconnection on 139.

I think you can force the client to avoid 445 (not sure about that)

You'll want to have a look at the logs to see exactly what is happening
on the server during the time your client is hung.
