I'm new to Linux and Samba and have set up a network that is almost done, but I need help with this problem.
I have a Linux (RH 7.1) server set up with 3 windows clients (2 98s and 1 XP) set up on a cable modem with IP Masqing, running Samba 2.0.7 on a 10mbit Ethernet LAN. All clients are able to access the internet, shares, files - in other words, everything seems to be working just as it should except for one thing.
Copying larger files (starting about 400k it seems) FROM Linux TO windows is extremely slow. A 5MB file copies FROM Linux in about 70 seconds, and TO Linux in 4 seconds.
I've tried all sorts of different socket options, large, small, with/without raw, etc. It is currently:
I thought of updating to the newest version of samba, but being new to Linux, I'm not sure if that will cause any problems. I downloaded an RPM. Will installing this RPM break anything that IS working? Will it help the problem at all?
What else could cause this slowdown? I find it strange that writing TO Linux is fast, but FROM Linux slow.
