1  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Slow SMB transfers on: April 13, 2011, 03:29:14 AM
I'm currently running two machines with Pardus 2011:

A Lenovo 3000 n200 -0769, and
A Dell Mini 10V, fully upgraded.

Both of these have pretty much the default install on them, other than my visual preferences and a few bits and pieces of software I've downloaded.

I'm trying to connect both of these machines to a machine running Windows XP. They both can connect ok, browse fine, and transfer stuff back and forth with no issue. The problem is transfer speeds - The Lenovo machine gets about 1.6Mb/s transfer, which is what I expect out of the light server I run. The Dell only gets about 16kb/s with random bursts of speed to 20-30kb. Internet transfers are no problem, so I think the issue is something in the config.

I see plenty of people having similar issues on other distros, and I have experienced it myself on a Ubuntu install. None of the suggested items have improved speeds on this one machine. It's consistent - the Lenovo is fast, the Dell is slow.

Both have the same type Broadcom wireless card, and I have not messed with the smb configuration files other than to verify that they are identical (save the names and workgroups) - any insight as to why this is happening would be appreciated.

(edited because the previous post made little sense. Don't post tired.)

It looks like I would have to mount the remote share into a local folder to make that happen. I don't understand mounting stuff yet, so that will have to wait...

I'm currently running Pardus 2011 on a Dell 10v, which is a nice combo. I'd like to stream music from my Windows server - MP3 mostly - to the Pardus machine.

I can create the share just fine, but any attempts to open and play a file over the network gives me a "You can only select local files" error box. Queuing files is ok, as it copies them to the local machine, but that's not an option with a large amount of music. Clementine and a few other music players do this.

I'm guessing this has something to do with the programs in question not being able to handle the smb protocol, whereas Dolphin is designed to do that. Research suggests it has to do with permissions and such, but the information I found didn't really mean a whole lot, other than "Yeah, it does that..."

 Any ideas?
