If it is set to yes, you may be experiencing DNS lookup delays when first connecting. Though I would expect something in the order of 90 seconds for DNS lookup delay when I can not find the host it is trying to look up. You should also look in /var/log/samba to see if the logs there say anything helpful. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
