Subject: [Samba] WinXP clients connect slowly to Samba


Haven't been able to find any information on either issue.

1) We have Windows clients (primarily NT4sp6a and WinXP sp1) connecting
to Samba servers, and it works fine but the connections are slow.  They
take 5-10 seconds whereas connections to native Windows servers are
nearly instant.

2) The WinXP machines seem to disconnect the SMB session to the Samba
servers ASAP rather than waiting the 15 minute period.  Combined with
the above problem, this is killing performance for several applications
we have in house.

Any ideas what could be causing either problem?  We are running Samba
2.2.4 on Solaris 2.8.

Thanks in advance.
