Well I am not sure what you mean by rings. What kind of xfer rates
could I expect on a dedicated point to point ethernet (2 computers)
using the slowest vs. fastest cards? Since alot of this is dependent
on the code and hardware I am not sure if you can give me a good
number. I am getting 30-40,000 chrs/second with the 3c501's but using
disk-cache and adjusting the buffering helped that.
Ahhh... Okay, I take back my comment. With only two nodes, your 3c501
will work just fine.
On the -w vs winpkt - Let me make sure I have this right. At the moment
you should use the packet driver without -w and winpkt? I am using the
driver with -w without winpkt and it works. Should I change? When will
the updates be available?
If it works, fine, but winpkt is the correct solution to the problem that
-w tries to solve.
