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:
