Samba performance, traffic control

Hello everybody,

After finding dozens of dozens of helpful advice here, I encountered a problem I was unable to solve, or I should say, unable to find in any thread.

I seek advice on how to increase Samba performance. You see, nearly all popular FTP daemons have the abilities to adjust transfer speed, number of connections, drop idle users, etc.
I am nearly sure smbd has such abilities, but, well, I don't know how to turn them on. Could you advise me on how to modify my smbd.conf to set, for example, transfer rate, or maximum number of connections.

I will be most grateful.

PS: oh, and could you post some links to samba manuals/scripts. Like on how to enable browsing samba shares via web browsers in Linux.

PS2: Sorry if I missed a similar thread. If someone mentioned something about the things above, just redirect me there. Thanks.

Well, I must remember to check out man first. 'man smbd.conf' was a good idea.

Anyway, I still don't know how to access SMB shares via browser. Are there any scripts required? Or is there some software available (I'm sure there is, just want to be best-informed).
