I have been experiencing slow network sharing since I moved from OSX 10.5 to OSX 10.6. I've tried many different things to correct this, but none have worked.

I wanted to take an opportunity to point out that in 10.5 I was able to work around this issue by using :
GO -> Connect to Server -> CIFS://sharename/

I am pretty sure I found a way to make CIFS the default share type, but it's been so long that I can't remember now. It went from very slow to loading very quickly and allowed searching of very-large in a timely manner.

When I do this in 10.6, I can click the share and see that it still connects with "SMB://sharename" despite specifically telling it to use CIFS.

Is there a way to force all network connection attempts that would normally use SMB to connect using CIFS or is this impossible in 10.6?

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me why it works this way since I was under the impression that those share-types were handled the same despite having different acronyms, but if it works, it works.

I'm not aware of a way to do this. A lot of people have reported slow SMB file sharing in Snow Leopard. We have a number of suggestions submitted by readers:

Hopefully, one of them may work. Let us know if it does.
