Sorry, but without further information, I do not see how anyone can help 
you. Your NAS may be running Samba, but if such a standard command as 
'testparm' isn't available, then this seems unlikely, or it is a much 
mangled version of Samba. If it is running a standard Samba version, 
somewhere there will be a smb.conf file.

I take it that you have tried Hitachi support ?

You may be able to run a trace on the network traffic between the two 
machines, perhaps this could provide more information.


PS please do not 'CC' me, or reply to 'all', just reply to the list.
