karstensceadugenga: .... would you prefer to make a dozen out-and-back trips with a can of soup in a sports car or a lorrie?
enoufsceadugenga: fwiw .. I suck .. i'm only a janitor here .. but I suggested some things to try ;-)
hattersceadugenga: brrrrrrrr wrong answer
karstensceadugenga: Large MTU == more data per packet, less overall latency loss and overhead, but you're waiting longer between packets.
sceadugengayeah, lorrie
karstensceadugenga: If the issue is large file transfers, increasing MTU *may* help, *if* latency and TCP overhead are the bottleneck.
sceadugengait won't make my net jump from =< 200kB/s to 700kB/s though?
karstensceadugenga: If the problem is elsewhere (lots of dropped packets, line congestion, unresponsive remote link, routing errors), it's not going to make much difference.
hattersceadugenga: i dont think so.
sceadugengaok, maybe i should just get another isp
karstensceadugenga: The best test: try it. If it helps, yes, that's your solution. If it doesn't: no, it's not.
sceadugengawell, thank you everyone for your help
thank you for your awesome descriptions karsten :D
sports car hehehe
maddashare there any encrypted FS that do not reside in userspace?
aredhelsceadugenga, if how ever the MTU is too high for some brain dead at your isp then you packet gets split up and is really slowed down. Try setting the MTU to about 1300, and if you get a big seep up, then that was the problem
karstensceadugenga: True story, before you split.
aredhel*brain dead equipment.
karstensceadugenga: You've heard the expression "never underestimate the bandwidth of a station-wagon full of tapes".
sceadugenga: Time was that the Usenet link between the US and Australia was ...
... not a station wagon ...
sceadugengano i haven't
haha
:)
karsten... but a 747. Daily flight of the latest traffic.
hatterkarsten: in 1993 we had an 8 mb connection to the country
karstenhatter: ... and both sides were the better off for it, mate ;-)
sceadugengahaha
hatterkarsten: now now, i will ssend my pet kangaroo over to jump on you :)
karstenhatter: I've got an old reference, 1992ish, on global networking systems. The FIDOnet (IIRC) link to Europe was *one* 9600 baud serial line.
hatter: Them's good eating!
hatterlol
karstenhatter: ... if you like gamey meat.
hatteri think the 8m was a little later
actionkarsten _has_ eaten roo.
karsten_has_ eaten roo.
hatternot much later though than 93
at the same time a school in the states had a 150Mb net connection
