slow transfers on 100mbit connection
Posted on 2000-05-15
i have two machines, "1" and "2":
1: windows98 + linux 2.2.15
nic: dec tulip 100mbit
2: win98 + linux 2.2.15
nic: 3com 905b 100mbit
the machines are connected with a crossover tp cable.
now, when i try transfering files with both machines in linux, the transfer rate drops to 2Kbytes/sec. with machine 1 in linux and 2 in win98, the transferrate is somewhat similar - 2k/sec. with 1 in win98 and 2 in win98 OR linux, the transfer rate easily goes up to 4 MB/sec!.. when both are in linux, it seems transfers go faster from 2 to 1 than from 1 to 2.
what might be causing this, and how do i fix it?
