win32-to-linux connection speed estimator

win32-to-linux connection speed estimator

Post by Glen » Sat, 01 Dec 2001 03:35:48

Hi, I'm trying to find an automated way to estimate the effective
connection speed between win32 clients and a Linux host (RH 7.2).

I've done some searching, and it seems some people have implemented
something like this with websites via CGI scripts and ASP code,
however I can't seem to find any code examples (searched Google,
Usenet via Google Groups, Freshmeat, SourceForge).  Also, I'm trying
to avoid a web-based solution altogether, but I'll take what I can

All suggestions/pointers appreciated.




1. Force pppd to report actual connection speed, instead of local port speed

I noticed that pppd reports the local port speed which is set to
115200. May I know how to set it to report the actual line connection
speed? (which is not 115200, my modem is a 56K only)
