  1. [Samba] winxp samba problem

    Greetings,

    I have a newly loaded WinXP/SP2 laptop connecting to a FC6 samba share. The
    first 2-3 accesses to the share work fine but then it goes south.

    The access times are extremely long. I did a tcpdump on the FC6 box and see
    constant samba traffic between the laptop
    and the server when there is no actively on the laptop. I have a different
    laptop running WinXP which doesn't behave
    in the same manner. After a 2-3 minutes, the network traffic stops and I
    can resume using the laptop. During this period, the
    laptop appears to be hung. Connection between the two is via wifi. I don't
    see any other problems while using the network.

    Both boxes are updated to the latest and greatest. Samba is
    samba-3.0.24-4.fc6, samba-client-3.0.24-4.fc6, samba-common-3.0.24-4.fc6

    Extensive googling has found nothing helpfully.

    Below is my smb.conf

    [global]

    oplocks = no
    workgroup = MONKEY
    server string = Data Server
    security = user
    hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
    load printers = yes
    cups options = raw
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
    max log size = 100
    dns proxy = no

    [printers]
    comment = All Printers
    path = /usr/spool/samba
    browseable = no
    guest ok = no
    writable = no
    printable = yes
    [data]
    comment = Data share
    path = /data1/smbshare
    valid users = smbuser
    public = no
    writable = yes
    printable = no
    [video]
    comment = Video share
    path = /data2/video
    valid users = smbuser
    public = no
    writable = yes
    printable = no

    Thanks for your help.

    Have you tried to use an ethernet cable, just to confirm it is not a
    wireless issue?

    Mark,

    Haven't had a chance yet. But I did another dump using tethereal.

    I see this error when I start browsing the share QUERY_PATH_INFO, Error:
