Re: Request for information about Iperf
Lots of variables so I'll start the requests for details, iperf should
be working in this environment.
Which of the plethora of windows OS's was on the laptop?
Any TCP tuning on either the Linux or windows?
Link latency between the laptop and the server?
What type of wireless interface? (And it's MTU.)
What sort of iperf data rates did you see? (sample output?)
What specific parameters are you using on iperf?
Did (or can) you tcpdump the transfer on the Linux host? (tcptrace and xplot perhaps)
Do you really want UDP? (Or is the actual traffic TCP.)
(who actually runs iperf mostly under bwctl :-)
