I've discovered that attempts to use both the B1 and B2 ISDN channels
together, in an aim to get 128kB bandwidth when I need to do a massive
transfer, actually makes the packets slow down to a crawl.
I talked to both the tech support folks for eircomnet/Telecom Internet, and
the ISDN support folks for the business division of the same. In essence, the
answer I was given was that eircomnet only "supports" 64kB of traffic; that
they do not support joining both channels together to increase the overall
throughput. They said they're fairly new to this, so that's why it took them
a while to come up with an answer when I called.
So, I turn to the more helpful source of information in the area---you
folks. :-) Is the above known to be true? Has anyone else successfully used
both channels, or am I destined to only really use the first channel?
Thanks for any hints!
