Hello all,

I have the smbfs performance problem while connecting to the Windows 
(w2k3) share in the AD environment, wint 6.1-PRERELEASE - with the 
filesystem mounted through mount_smbfs i get 300-350 kBps (kiloBytes 
per sec) speed, while through the smbclient i get the speeds in excess 
of 8MB/s.
Is this possible bug in mount_smbfs or just the simple misconfiguration?
I have configured the /etc/nsmb.conf file as per manual and it really 
gets connected nicely but afterwards it presents me with catastrophic 

With respect
