: I am using slip between an hp9000/720 hpux9.01 system and a linux box
: running pl99.13. I got slip to start, but the performance is
: terrible. Pings take >1sec. Eventually it just hangs.
What type of line are you using? 1200, 9600? 19.2? Is there other
traffic on the line at the time? Are pings lost? Are you sending
larger than default pings?
The response time seems bad, what is the throughput like? (For
measuring throughput, and/or response time, people might want to look
at netperf, available via anonymous FTP from
col.hp.com:dist/networking/benchmarks grab version 1.7, the 1.8 that
is out there doesn't have the updated docs...oops)
I can remember playing with ping on MPE with X.25, and with a suitably
slow link, I could back-up the line with pings and watch the response
