Is there a way to send data from my pc to my pc ?

I need to maximize the inbound traffic for some seconds.
Something like ping but with bigger packets so i can maximize the inbound traffic for some seconds...

Thanks in advance.

    You can ping with a packet size
    ping somemachine -l 10000 -t
    will send 10,000 bytes in each packet
    -l size
    -t ping until stopped

    Sure. If you want to build up traffic for a length of time,
    you can simply set up one of the pc's as a webserver or ftp server,
    then login to the server and download a file(in ftp for example).

    All you need is to use the delphi NMFTP component to create the server,
    and you can login with a browser from the other PC.

    If you need constant congestion you can set up two programs. 1 a TCPServer, and the Other a TCPClient. then read a long string in an endless loop and send it from the server to the client.
