Re: smbfs: questions and issues

I re-discover smbfs after few years, I see it's still as slow and 
itchy as it was

Yes, the performance and bugginess of Samba / smbfs have not been improving at all. Which is probably not the 
developers' fault, but a poorly designed protocol. 

If your setup allows it, you might want to try sshfs. Coming from smbfs, I've found it to be ridiculously 
fast and reliable.

There is also mc's internal #sh support:

cd #sh:user server:/path

You might want to try both (FUSE sshfs and mc #sh) and see which one works best for you. I tend to use sshfs 
for local resources, as a replacement for smbfs or nfs, and #sh for remote resources.
