    Samba share is incredibly SLOW


    I am connecting windows vista to a directory on a fedora 10 server using samba. I am getting incredibly slow file transfer times. Only about 300KBps. I am pretty sure the problem is with windows or my samba configuration. I have the client machine dual booted with fedora and when I connect to the server using nfs it works great. I'm mapping the drive using the internal ip address of the server. This is my smb.conf

    [global]
    workgroup = MYGROUP
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    security = user
    passdb backend = tdbsam

    [nfs_fileshare]
    browseable = yes
    writable = yes
    valid users = Julie
    path = /www/nfs_fileshare


    Does anyone have any ideas why it could be so slow?

    Samba share is incredibly SLOW

    Try adding
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
    to your smb.conf

    Cheers!
