Hi folks :-)


debian stable (samba version 2:3.2.5-4lenny9)

from clients by ftp the transfer of huge file is about 10/11Mb/s (with an 
ethernet 10/100)

by samba came 5/6Mb/s

is it correct?

In smb.conf I don't have any "strange"options:



domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 65
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = name
Server String = name

#wins support = yes
wins server = x.x.x.x
name resolve order = wins
#host dns bcast
hosts allow = x.x.x.x/x

log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
encrypt passwords = yes
null passwords = no
unix extensions = yes
