I haven't found anything useful googling around so I decided to ask here.
I have a Linux server running Samba on 100Mbit/s ethernet. If I connect to it
using WinXP, mount some share and download files from it it reaches about
9MB/s transfer rate. Using FTP gives even higher transfer rates.
when I use linux to connect to (linux!) server, mount shares and download
files then transfer speed reaches only about 3-4 MB/s. Using smbclient is a
bit faster (0.5-1MB but not always). Using other linux workstations (faster
machine) i could only boost transfer rate to 5.0-5.5MB/s.
Server and workstation machines are using 2.4.27 and samba 2.2.12 (slackware
Is anyone familiar with this issue?
