the problem is that the laptop is sending the icmp for port unreachable on
smb dgram port - or better said I am concerned that this is the last thing we
see before all activity stops.
Set up the normal configuration i.e over dial up and cipe.
Confirm with "netstat -antup" that you have the samba listening on all the
ports it should - particularly the udp dgram port (138).
Confirm that you are not blocking this port with "iptables -L -v -n"
Is there anything in the samba configuration which restricts connectivity
to/from specific hosts/nets?
The direct connection test means that a lot of samba must be working - the
main differences (beside speed) are the use of eth0 on the laptop rather than
ppp0 and cipcb0.
The results I saw do not indicate a flood in one direction which does not get
through - also the packet sizes are small and this isn't an mtu problem.
