I'm running Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 with Samba 3.0.24-2ubuntu
When I copy file with Samba from my Mac OS X 10.4.9 to the Linux Box  a
4,3Gb take 11 Hours ... with AFP (netatalk)   < 1 Mn ...
I've got full gigabit network : cat 5e cable with jumbo frames enabled
on the switch ...

I've change a sysctl parameter on the OS X box ... but still very slow !
Which parameters can I change on samba to optimize tranfers ?

I'm going to try with a Windows XP client ...
