Dear friends,
I am having some problems in transferring large files between a linux
box (Samba) and a Windows 2000 Professional workstation.
When I copy a file (about 150 Mbytes) from Windows 2000 Professional to
Linux Box everything is OK, but when copying the same file from the
linux box to the Windows 2000, it takes a very long time (and sometimes
an error ocurrs: The network resource may be unavailable).
            Could you have any idea about this kind of problem?
Machines details:
Linux box:
-          Pentium III 700 Mhz;
-          256 Mb RAM;
-          120 Gb HD IDE;
-          Realtek 8139 network card chip (kernel module 8139too);
-          Mandrake 9.2 Linux;
-          Samba 2.2.8a with Winbind;
Windows station:
-          Pentium 4 2.8 GHz HT;
-          512 Mb RAM;
-          80 Gb HD IDE;
-          Realtek 8139 network card chip;
-          Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 3;
Thanks in advance
