Slow Connections Too
Authored by: eo on Jan 22, '03 10:43:28AM

Yes this also affects me when I mount SMB shares over a (relatively) slow Internet connection. Sometimes ALL apps will lock up for 10 - 30 seconds while waiting for a response from the server; I've learned to be a bit patient, because if the server does go down, the connection will timeout and things will return to normal. This may take up to 5 minutes of waiting.

I mount AFP volumes in the same manner, but never see any lockups.

The same with AFP.

Apple please fix this. Finder and Apps are unusable with network connections that aren't always available!

To some degree it depends on the version of Samba that is running on the server. Make sure the server is up to date. Updating our servers didn't get rid of the slowness problem completely, but it helped alot (it is actually usable now)
