double with 1K chip cache enabled).
With a 38.4K serial ppp I was getting 70 ping and 1.7K/sec transfer
rate due to many errors with the old UART. With plip I get a 5 ping
and 40K/sec transfer rate. Plip module set for a specific port even
works alongside auto lp module on another port.
But during file transfer, I get frequent messages flashing to the
screen like 'receive timeout (4,c7)' and 'transmit timeout (4,87)'
while saving files on the slow machine. The files seem to transfer
intact, but the console messages mess up the screen display of ncftp.
Does plip have any flow control? Can these messages be selectively
suppressed without suppressing other errors?
I don't seem to have the 'plipconfig' program mentioned in the PLIP
mini HOWTO, but I did notice some variables in the module I could try
Possibly increasing the delay unit on the fast machine would make all
its plip timers run longer.
