Hi All,


I had migrated a Windows 2003 Server to a Samba Server (only for file share)


We share only the company system. That's a 3mb Delphi .exe and a 1,5mb


BTW, the system loads 4 .jpg files from the server.


On our old Windows Server the system was very fast on Samba is damn slow.
About 2 mins to load.


I have no clue on what to do.


Server Specs: Pentium 4 3.0Ghz 1GB RAM, FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE and Samba


Here's is my smb.conf



   workgroup = CLASS

   server string = Class Data Server

   security = share

   hosts allow = 192.168.0.

   load printers = yes

   printing = cups

   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

   max log size = 150

   socket options = TCP_NODELAY

   interfaces =

   dns proxy = no

   veto oplock files = /*.exe/*.dll/*.jpg/*.pdf/*.gif/

   oplock break wait time = 1

   debug level = 10



        Comment = Class

        Browseable = Yes

        Writeable = Yes

        Force User = root

        create mask = 0777

        path = /dados/samba/Class

        Guest ok = Yes

        fake oplocks = yes



Best Regards,

Mauro Ribeiro
