How can I obtain the speed of a network connection to a pc on a LAN?.

ie PC1, PC2, PC3 all in the same workgroup running Win98. How effective is the network connection between PC1 + PC3 ?.

Can this be done, and if so how?

A quick easy way would be to write a program to

1. start a timer
2. copy a large file between the computers
3. stop the timer.

Get the timer to increment a global variable every time it fires.

By adjusting the delay time on the timer and multiplying it by your count, you can get a good idea of the comparative speed of your network from time to time.
