asppp and solaris 2.5

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

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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,
