I have WINS server at one end. It doesn't matter if I log onto domain or 
not and doesn't matter if I use trusting accounts or not (win2k or win9x), 
it's always slow.

BUT!!!

SMB is as fast as your cable speed with FreeSWAN tunnels ! ! !
I tried it few days ago and I got very good test speeds. so if you need to 
tunnel windows LAN-s, use it. http://www.freeswan.org
I didn't hope it solves my problems, but it really did and it's very 
interesting, why is it slow with Cipe and not with FreeSWAN.

Has anybody tested another tunnels?
