Finder slows/hangs when trying to mount SMB share

OS X 10.6, all updates applied

When I try and mount a SMB share on our file server, Finder slows to a crawl. The share will eventually mount, but it could take as long as 10 minutes, and then it will take the same amount of time to browse through folders.

Which one worked? Was it the delayed ack problem?

twardnwAuthor Commented:
the first one worked, just using the full share name instead of just the server, but I am keeping that page book-marked for future reference

And this is also interesting. Before, I would have to re-connect every several hours. Since I mounted the share using the full SMB path, the share has not disconnected.
