quickest way to max out your bandwidth

Hello, I just installed a site to site vpn to a remove office and I want to make sure that we will have enough bandwith for this site so I want to max out our bandwidth at our main site and see how the remote will work.  Does anyone know the quickest way to max out your bandwidth for testing purposes?

There is probably a more scientific way, but i would just do a robocopy of a series of files of known size from several machines to several other machines over a specific period of time.

I want to max out our internet bandwidth then test the remote site's vpn connection to see how slow it will be.

I am doing that, but is there a way of doing that with internet bandwidth?

Yes, use an ftp on the internet.  and a download site.  also be aware that your router may prioritizecertain data.

Thanks everyone!
