I am experiencing very slow (7-11MB per second) transfers from a Vista
64 Box (SP1) to my FreeNAS box which runs FreeBSD a couple of feet away.
All Linux and BSD boxes can transfer, via FTP, between each other at
around 60-90MB/sec...which is more like it. This Vista box however, is a
bottleneck. All NIC's are Intel Pro 1000 via CAT 6 cable. I have each of
the workstations (6 linux, 3 BSD and 1 Vista 64) connected to a HP 16
port Gigabit managed switch. Before the switch, I have my a Mikrotik
RouterOS box running via Linux which acts as the Internet gateway and/or
router via Masquerading.
I saw the reference to Vista Network Helper and it looks to be what I
am looking for, but I tried all sources to find a valid download link to
no avail. Can anyone post a current link or pm/email me with the info?
Of course, if anyone has a more direct (edit the registry) type deal, I
would be all ears. According to my references from
the key values for Vista I need to change would be:
- TcpWindowSize ~131400 (decimal value)
- Tcp13230pts - value of 3 (RFC1323 scaling and time stamping)
- ForwardBufferMemory ~80000
- NumForwardPackets ~60000
According to that site, and I know those values above pertain to XP, I
should see a big performance gain transferring files via TCP
With Linux and BSD it is just so straight forward and simple, but with
Vista I am bit confused on a few of the options. I do not expect to get
as fast as with the Linux or BSD clients, but I would like at least
40+MB/sec via FTP.
Thank you very much
