smbfs mounted partition hangs while saving files

Hello all,

I am trying to setup a few Linux workstations with Suse 9.2 Pro for testing in our office.

I need to create mount points for those machines to access our file server that is running Samba.

I have created the mount point and execute the following command as root:

smbmount //server/misc /mnt/file_server/misc -o username=****%******,uid=512,gid=500,fmask=0660,dmask=0770
The command executes just fine and the share is mounted. I can view files and open files, but when I try to create new ones or save modified ones the application just hangs for a while then comes back with an input/output error and says it could not save the file.

When I look through the directory listings of the share the new or modified file is there with all its contents intact.

If I login to my RedHat 9 box and execute the same command everything works just as it should.

I have been messing with this problem for far to long and hope to get some outside insight.
