hello folks

dont know if this is a faq:

a customer currently uses a Suse 9.2 pro with the last version of Samba to
share a folder containing data for an Enterprise Management program (Windows

everything works fine with local clients (many 98s and 1 XP machine). 

we have some (15) clients connecting to the ERP program via a Terminal Server
(Windows2K server). these clients often stuck in some requests for 5 to 15
minutes (randomly) and then unlock and continue working. 

note that:
- the same folder on a Win2000 machine works fine (ie. no stucks)
-> this means it is a samba problem
- local clients work find
-> this means it is a terminal-server-related problem

i thought it was something related to oplocks and i have disabled them (level
1 AND level 2) but the problem is still here.

now I ***suppose*** this is something like:
- samba receives many connections from the same IP (the terminal server)
and has problems de-mux-ing the requests...

any ideas??????????? 

mny tnx in adv
