This occassion. 

Samba 3.0.26, connected to Windows 2000 server. POP3 checks user presenting 
throug PAM and squid does auth through ntlm_auth. Nearest DC suddenly fails 
and shoud be got down to maintenance. Exist far DC, ping about 30 ms. 
Checking user presence for POP3 by pam_winbindd and auth for squid sometimes 
succesful, sometimes not. 

How to increase timeout on connection to DC to allow work PAM and ntlm_auth on 
link with ping 30-40 ms between Samba and DC?
   With Best Regards.
