OS X Samba server problems

I had problems setting up a networked hard drive that would talk to my Mac OS X laptop. I could copy about 50Mb of data and then the whole wireless network would crash and nothing would work at all. The fix turned out to be this obscure setting. Now everything seems to be working...


  1. I had a similar problem where Samba was really slow. So I changed a setting, could have been that one, and everything worked. Obviously.

  2. Yep, no problems at all since then and I've got all my music files being served over the network instead of filling up the laptop.
