Don't know. I have my Ubuntu server as a member of my Win2003 AD home
domain, so browsing should be controlled by Windows (which is usually
the cause of slow browsing, on Windows). For me, it was mostly an
exercise, done for the classic Linux reason - Because I Could, not
because I needed to. For me, I attached a NTFS formatted external
drive (that had been on my AD controller), loaded up NTFS-3G, shared
it out via SAMBA, and run SnycToy (Windows version of rsync) to backup
photos from another Windows workstation to that share via UNC.

Works fine. I schedule it to happen while I'm at work, and now I can
pretty much forget about it.
