I am a beginner with servers. I checked the error logs for Samba and it appears that Samba is timing out when I transfer large files. I can successfully add PDFs for instance to my file server. However, I tried to add a large 1.2Gb video file and it did not succeed.
This is the error in the log:

read_fd_with_timeout failed for client read error = NT_STATUS_CONNECT$

Is there a way I can stop it from timing out? Any pointers would be great! Thanks!
