hign latency to access samba-server


Hi all,
I have about 30 pcs in my lan. I use windows_xp and centos 5 in those machines. The configuration of my samba server is:
1.machine = HP Compaq DX2000MT
2.OS = CentOS release 4.2
3.processor = Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
4.RAM = 1GB
Now, for last few days it is taking a long time to access the samba-server from some of my windows machines. The authentication-prompt comes after 10/12 minutes of pressing the Enter-button in the windows'explorer.

If anybody can help me about the issue then it will be very helpful for me.

Thank you all
Rizvi

Do you have a sniffer app like wireshark to see what is swamping the Samba Server?
Failing a Sniffer you could disconnect all but one PC to see if Network traffic is the issue.

Dear all,
after so long i have got a solution of this particular problem. I have just used the option 'map network drive' and mounted the necessary samba shares. Now its working fine.


Thank You ALl,
Rizvi
