connection. Consider that you're sending mostly uncompressed text (html)
through serial ports locked at 115k... you should get some really good
I run a web server on my linux system connected through a 33.6k modem.
Actually, it's a USRobotics X2 modem, but they only receive data at 56K.
They can't send that fast.
