Description

Ref: http://blog.sip2serve.com/post/23097520081/win7-samba-issue-on-ubuntu-precise-12-04

Article states to add a line to the /etc/samba/smb.conf file in General Settings:
max protocol = NT1

I will add more if I find them. Testing now to see if performance improved.

Did you try these settings?

You can freely change the smb.conf file (i think it reloads samba automatically upon saving it) and see how it fares.

I am not well set up for doing performance, but i could try.

So far I see little or no improvement with the changes. Maybe we should start a topic in the forums and post on FB to get folks involved.
