I am not really sure. The samba help talks about 2 options:
TCP_NODELAY This effects the transmit side right, sending before the
buffer is filled
IPTOS_LOWDELAY (is this the same as delay ack)
Anyway I want to try to see what gives with my poor performance between
win2k and my samba server running on netbsd.
The message before talked about delayed ack, so I will start there.
Any help appreciated.
