Hi everyone,

I hope someone can help me with the following problem:

I administer 2 separate networks, each with one samba server  (samba versions 
are 3.0.14 and 3.0.22) and serveral windows xp professional clients. There 
were never any problems, but recently one of the employees bought a laptop 
with windows xp home that he wants to use in both networks. He does not log 
on to the domain like other employees but only accesses  the shares. He 
complains that office hangs when he is working on an excel sheet that's on 
the server. I also noticed some errors in te logson both servers, for 

libsmb/cliconnect.c:cli_connect(1330)  Error connecting to 
(Operation already in progress) : 1 Time(s)


 lib/util_sock.c:write_data(557)  write_data: write failure in writing to 
client Error Broken pipe : 1 Time(s)

Can this have something to do with XP home or not logging onto the domain? I 

Thanks, regards Chantal
