I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There's a tool I saw an expert post here some time ago called NetCPS. You run it as a server on one machine, and as a client on the other, and it will transfer data as fast as it can over the network and record it's speeds. You can specify how many megs to transfer before stopping, as well as which port to use, and the server machine obviously has to have that port open.
