Could you please elaborate ?

The only thing I could find is the windows "Slow network" setting
supposed to disable network share checkout in case of slow network,
timeout, etc. There is a registry setting enabling enforcing "slow

Samba has got "csc policy", but frankly, I do not quite get how to use
it. Could provide some clue in here ?
