I have recently build my second home server. And it is working great the only weird thing that i would like to solve is that my Samba transfer speed from Windows 10 to my server is mostly around 100mbps and on the same computer with ubuntu i get around 60mbps. With my macbook i also get around 60mbps. All of this is with a gigabit network setup. (No wireless) I have tried multiple guides to speed up my samba share but they don't seem to improve anything. I'm running ubuntu server 14.04.02 lts

Something to bear in mind is that Samba is designed for communication between Windows and Linux machines, so should work faster than the other two. For filesharing between Linux machines NFS is the correct protocol to use.

The Ubuntu help page for NFS can be found here.
