macOS - SMB Tweaking

By Jack Szwergold • October 6, 2015

Honestly, some of this is just “magic” and I don’t trust any of these configs. But noting them here just in case I ever have to enter the nightmare of Mac/Windows cross platform nonsense.

A bad idea.

sudo nano /etc/nsmb.conf

[default]
    streams=no
    notify_off=yes
    port445=no_netbios

A better idea.

sudo nano /etc/nsmb.conf

[default]
    streams=yes

Something that might work.

sudo nano /etc/smb.conf

sudo nano /private/etc/smb.conf

[global]
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
    large readwrite = no

Edit SMB (Samba) shares.

sudo nano /var/db/samba/smb.shares
