FTP is still the fastest !
Authored by: iMMersE on Oct 16, '02 06:40:03PM

I dunno, I'm getting speeds of close to 5Mb/s using samba and FTP - For me at least, using a 100Mbps through a hub, there are no real differences with speed, not that I've noticed anyway. Samba is my choice du jour, you can mount the drives, and edit files in place. I've not had any problems with Samba, so I'm hoping (unfortunately, for the author) that his experience is an expection rather than the rule.

FYI, I'm using 10.2.1, upgraded from 10.2.0, from 10.1.5 and maybe a previous version before that when I first bought the iBook.

Yes FTP may be fast but there is one thing that FTP dosent allow. Running of files without coping the file to your computer. I do this ALOT. Mostly with divx files and MP3's.

I also have had NO trouble with samba in OSX. Granted Apple really screwed up in desinging it cause the samba options are all over the OS, and there is no 'easy' way to add shares other than editing the smb.conf file manually. And yes, I have tried to enable SWAT, but I tried EVERY tip here and I constantly get the same error, even on a squeky clean install.
