ISSUE: Samba File Transfers are Slow
Unfortunately, you are usually limited to a single line of transmission which is the cause of the slow transfers with Samba. However, Samba has been updated to use the SMB 3.0 protocol which allows the use of multiple lines of transmissions (aka network cards and cords) to be utilized. Windows 10 has been using the SMB 3.0 protocol for a few years now with Windows 7 still being stuck on SMB 2.0. However, we are mainly talking about the Samba host configuration at this time.
sudo xed /etc/samba/smb.conf
`[global] workgroup = VWORLD.US server role = standalone server aio read size = 1 aio write size = 1 server min protocol = SMB3 server max protocol = SMB3 client min protocol = SMB3 client max protocol = SMB3 server multi channel support = yes ; bind interfaces only = yes ; interfaces = lo bond0 192.168.1.99 bind interfaces only = yes hosts allow = 192.168.0.0/16 hosts deny = 0.0.0.0/0 ; log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m ; max log size = 1000 ; syslog = 0 ; panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d # users map to guest = bad user guest ok = yes ; usershare allow guests = yes ; username map = /etc/samba/smbusers ; security = user ; encrypt passwords = yes ; guest account = nobody ; obey pam restrictions = yes ; unix password sync = yes ; passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u ; passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* . ; pam password change = yes [Share] comment = This is just a note for the share path = /srv/ force group = group force user = username writeable = yes browseable = yes`
sudo systemctl stop smbd
sudo systemctl start smbd
Save, reboot, and then test it out.
