Stressing a network connection

I am running 2 x M'soft 2000 clients networked together for VoIP. In order to stress the cable and subsequently test the VoIP s/w i thought I could use the ping command, however due to the nature of the file sent using ping it does not stress the cable enough. Can i do something using batch files or is there some freeware somewhere that can restrict bandwidth???

Check out stress testing tools (aka denial of service tools) at packetstorm.  They have  a bunch,  a good one is UDP Flood 2.0 which fires configurable UDP packets at any desired rate.  Of course, UDP does not have flow control, so it is good for your purposes.  


Good luck!
