    Re: PC shuts down randomly and then restarts

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Is Samba read/write rate performance on Ubuntu 20.04 capped at around 11MB/s?

    Note that ordinary FTP is also much faster. FTP is natively supported by Windows file managers also. The user level security is bad, but so is that of SMB.

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Is Samba read/write rate performance on Ubuntu 20.04 capped at around 11MB/s?

    The performance is not capped. SMB is just a very inefficient and chatty protocol. SFTP will be even worse, since is also has to encrypt and decrypt the data. Run tcpdump or wireshark to see what...
