Subject: Miserable NFS performance between NetBSD and MacOS X

I've got a NetBSD 3.0_RC6 NFS server and a MacOS X 10.3.9 NFS client.
NFS works fine in general but is miserable slow. Copying a file 300MB
file takes about an hour. Transfering a file of the same size with
FTP only takes half a minute. "ttcp" between the two systems runs
nicely at 90MB/s. The mount parameters in "mounts.byname"
look like this:

server:/remote/path /local/path nfs rw,nosuid,nodevs,resvport,tcp 0 0

Has anybody else seen similar problems? Is there a solution?

	Kind regards
