Speed up Samba file copying speeds
Authored by: Shawn Parr on Nov 11, '05 06:24:02PM

My guess is that the original poster is connecting to a Windows Based server. Windows does not do delayed ACK properly, for more info you can find lots of info on it via Google. Often this is done on the server side when your server is not windows and your clients are.

That being said, be careful! This could cause the rest of your traffic to suffer! If most of your traffic is to a Windows server it may not be a big deal, but if your traffic is more generalized than your SMB being up and the rest being down may not be that pleasant.

As a recent switcher, I just discovered this site and this hint is exactly what I needed. I tried connecting my powerbook through a cable to my network, thinking it was the airport that was so slow. With your help i now copy a CD iso in 8-9 minutes instead of nearly one hour!
