I am doing some speed tests with different types of file transfers in my network.
I have noticed that windows file transfers (SMB) are slower than FTP, HTTP, and other types of protocols.
I was thinking that is might have to do with a persistent connection.
I have a few questions, not just one.
Do SMB File Transfers use a persistent connection?
Do SMB File transfers send one packet at a time and wait for an asoociated ACK? or do they do something like HTTP pipelining?
Is there a way I can find this information out for myself? (Microsoft's site is not helpful.)
