Recently, I improved "ftp" in one of our products which is 4.2BSD based.
When I typed ftp> bin
             ftp> get /syst /dev/null, 
I had:
             351465 bytes received in 1 second ( 3.4 e + 02 Kbytes/sec )

I didn't use Van Jacobson's Algorithm.

Is there anybody has better "ftp" performance than mine ???

Bye Bye

It would be interesting to see what performance you would get
with a good tcp.  I think Dave Borman of Cray Research holds the
current ftp speed record:  He routinely gets 30 Megabytes/sec
(of course, some of us think using two Cray-IIs gives him an
unfair competitive advantage).  If you're using more
conventional hardware, 340 KB/s still isn't spectacular.  Here's
a typescript between two of our Sun 3/60s across an ethernet.
Both machines are running stock 4.3bsd-tahoe ftp & ftpd with
Mike Karels' and my tcp & kernel hacks:

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
