There is something to care about when I use samba in Ubuntu from a Windows XP client? The speed is very slow.
I tried to do the same test from a Windows 7 and there was no problems.
The test I tried, is just open an Excel file. From a Windows 7, it takes 2~5sec but from a Windows XP (service pack 2) it takes 1min.
I'm getting this error in the log of that client:
[2014/02/13 18:01:48.734267, 0] smbd/server.c:1107(main) standard input is not a socket, assuming -D option
I don't know if I have to try other configuration in the server. Now I'm using this configuration:
[global] unix extensions = no kernel oplocks = no nt acl support = no strict locking = no [share] path="[...]" writable = yes read only = no create mode = 0777 valid users = +smbusers inherit permissions = yes force group = smbusers force create mode = 0777 force directory mode = 0777
