Clients: Windows 7 64-bit, Server: Samba 3.0.37
Samba socket options: TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE
One samba share is mapped to Windows computers as a network drive. From time to time it takes too long to open the mapped drive (15-20 seconds), in Windows explorer as well as in the console. I believe Windows loses a connection to the network share and tries to restore it from scratch.
So the question is - how to keep the connection alive or to speed up the connection process?
