I've samba running an embedded linux system (2.6.x kernel with uClibc).  I'=
m trying to transfer some medium to large files (65-225 MB). I'm using simp=
le windows explorer drag/drop to write the files to the embedded system.  T=
he file transfer dialog will show some progress then lock up for a few minu=
tes. After this it reports with "The specified network name is no longer av=
ailabe."  Then after a few seconds the file will show up on the embedded sy=
stem but will be totally useless (I did a compare on it with the original).
Here is what the "log.winxptest" file tailed shows,
smbd/service.c:make_connection(550) winxptest ( connect to se=
rvice data as user winxpuser (uid=3D501, gid=3D500)  (pid 241)
lib/util_sock.c:client_addr(1061)  getpeername failed. Error was Transport =
endpoint is not connected
lib/util_sock.c:write_socket_data(540)  write_socket_data: write failure. E=
rror =3D Connection reset by peer
lib/util_sock.c:write_socket(566) write_socket: Error writing 4 bytes to so=
cket 3: ERRNO =3D Connection reset by peer
lib/util_sock.c:send_smb(754)  Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. Exiting
I can't delete the file through samba now after this either.  Reading files=
 from the embedded system have no problems.
