Slow When accessing Samba Share

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have an old DOS application (clipper/blinker) that runs well under
DOSEMU when the files are local. When the Samba share is mounted and I
use lredir for that share it is very slow -- slower than Windows XP
clients that access the same share on the same server.

Furthermore I have a DOS error 5 when I try a function in that program
on a Linux client with the SMB share. If I select retry it works. What
seems to happen is that the program is creating a file and then tries
to read it. I think because access is so slow, the file is not created
until after it tries to access it.

On the server is running dosemu- and like I said, it works with
no problems... it runs quicker than on the XP machines. On the client
it is dosemu- (which is odd, because I downloaded DOSEMU from
the site only a few days ago and the other one has been running over 6

What can I do to solve this?
