[Samba] WinXP clients connect slowly to Samba

Thanks but that didn't help.  My Samba servers are not configured either as
DCs nor are they have they been configured as memebers of the domain.  I
have a feeling that this may explain why it takes so long for WinXP to
connect to the Samba servers, but not why the WinXP clients disconnects from
the share ASAP.

For the WinXP problems, take a look here, specifically the 2nd to last FAQ

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

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.
