Hi folks :-)

I've a slow vpn over internet (20kb/s) and I mount samba shares from clients. 
(smbmount //server/share1 /home/share/share1 -o "username=xxxx,pass=xxxx")

Everytime that I open a share, the os re-load whole directories, using 20kb/s 
is very noise..because is REALLY slow..

is there a/any options to keep all directory opened (and files) in something 
like local cache?
