I am running solaris 2.5 on a sparc 5. asppp is working fine but when I ftp download a one meg file to a server it takes about one minute, when I upload the same file to my sparc it takes only 30 seconds. I am using a 33.6 modem, my isp 28.8 max. Is this the modem or my isp or my setup in my "/etc/remote" file" or other... thanks

This is a problem related to network tuning in solaris 2.5. Try the following commands:

ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_rexmit_interval_initial 3000
ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_rexmit_interval_min 6000
ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_mss_max 536

This helped on my machine. You still may need to play with those numbers,
but I doubt it. I think there is also a patch from Sun for it. If you can't get along with the fast remedy above, let
me know, I will then supply you with the patch ID.

Good luck,

Your answer fixed my problem immediatly. Thanks. Could you please supply me with the patch ID, I stop and start my sparc everyday so at the moment I will create a shell for the fix.

Thanks again.
