slow transfer speed samba

Hello everyone,

i'll get right to business:

I'm having a problem with slow samba transfer speeds. I can access windows shares in my network without any problem and i can download files from them at about 400kbps. But when someone on my network wants to access my shared directory, they only get about 10kbps. Is there something wrong with my smb.conf or is iptables the cause of such slow speed?

Addendum: my smb.conf


workgroup = FAB3B
encrypt passwords = yes
domain logons = yes
server string = Samba on UNIX
netbios name = DELGADO
log level = 2
default service = data
security = share
local master = yes
wins support = yes
name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast
dns proxy = yes
os level = 34
preferred master = yes
domain master = yes
security = user

path = /home/denys/samba
valid users = fabber
browseable = yes
comment = Gedeelde map op Linux
volume = samba
guest ok = yes
writeable = no

Hope this helps, Steve
