If you access your Netgear ReadyNAS Duo via your Windows Explorer and you think it’s a little slow when reading/writing, then you could get a little speed boost from adding one line to the Samba configuration.
You’ll need access as root via SSH to log into the ReadyNAS.
Backup the current config file:
# cp -p /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.bak
Then as root, edit the samba config file:
# vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
Add the new line under section “[global]”:
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=65536 SO_SNDBUF=65536
Save the file (ZZ).
# /etc/init.d/samba restart
Stopping Samba daemons: nmbd smbd.
Starting Samba daemons: nmbd smbd.
You should notice a performance improvement when transferring files.
