When I use Tortoise SVN on a samba drive inside virtualbox it is exremly slow... is there anyway to config samba to make it any faster? On a local drive it is very fast so it is not the svn server.
Make sure that traffic on the following ports is allowed to the host running Samba.
TCP: 139 445 UDP: 135 137 138
I inserted the following lines into smb.conf file under [global].
read raw = No write raw = Yes
Seemed to speed things up quite a bit. The page linked to below should help. There's a bit on the TCP_NODELAY socket option which is apparently a fantastic option to set.
