Accessing samba shares on a redhat es 6.1 server from a Win7 PC through hamachi VPN (direct tunnel)
The access is slow. Saving a file takes 2-3 seconds. (no matter the size -- even <100bytes)
right clicking a file takes a couple seconds for menu to show up, etc
I am guessing it has to do with back and forth... all the extra requests that windows makes about file meta data or something like that....
FYI -- I can telnet to the server through the VPN and response is snappy just like if I was onsite. But Samba is a BIG difference between onsite and offsite.
