Howto speedup a slow or not working Samba when connecting from Windows Vista or Windows 7

From Shazbot Blog

If Samba is slow or not working with Windows Vista.
Try this tip

  1. Run secpol.msc
  2. Go to: Local Policies > Security Options
  3. Find “Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level”
  4. Change Setting to “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated”

This also works when connecting from Windows 7.
