What kind of results do you get with, for example, 20MB of data in a
single file? I can write such a file at 500KB/s to an NFS export on an
Ultra 30 running Solaris on 100BaseT with an SS20 clone running
OpenBSD on 10BaseT as the client over a no-name 10/100 switch. Using a
PC running FreeBSD on 100BaseT as the client, I can write it at 4072KB/s.
