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
