10.6: Slow SMB browsing of Windows Servers fixed
Authored by: afingal on May 04, '11 11:18:23AM

There are some issues which seem to be related to the configuration of Windows servers. Default configurations, in my experience, have no problems with Mac clients. Yet, at the university where I work, we see these problems, with performance and, in some cases, also with Macs being able to connect to a share but not see the contents (files and folders are missing.) Ironically, it seems to happen with the file servers which have been in use for a long time and were configured specifically to work with Macs. Unfortunately, I have not been able to pin down the Windows system administrators and find out what is really going on. There is a Windows Server package called "Services for Macintosh" and I wonder if that, or outdated versions of it, could be the problem.
