Does anyone know of a cheap or free tool I can use to test speed between PC's on my LAN an WAN.  I am looking to track down some bottle necks and would like to just test connection speed between PC's on my local LAN and then test over my WAN.  I was hoping there may be a tool I can run that will say from PC1 to PC2, the speed it this...etc..

Thanks..

Robocopy from Microsoft... great tool because it gives you full reports on throughput when it finishes.
It's in the resource kit for 2000 at least..

Qcheck from Ixia is the best free utility I have come across in some time.  You can test throughput, response time, and streaming performance.  I have it setup on a server in our core stack of switches and I can test connections to the main stack from anywhere on the network with my laptop.
