T1 speed on different OS's

By gmcclure ·
Just curious! We just got a T1 installed in our office. When I do a speed test from
computingcentral.msn.com -- our two Linux boxes (one on a pentium pro 200, the other is a low end celeron), clock in at
~1300 mbps.
Our NT4.0 workstations clock in at half the speed ~600mbps! (boxes are low end celerons).
All boxes are on a peer to peer network, on the same segment.
Is this normal? Are there some things on NT setup I should be looking at??

Thanks
Curious

Dear Curious:

I feel like I should sign this "Dear Abby". You are embarking on a scary side of networking, in a bean-counting kind of way. There are several default values that might benefit from tweaking, like frame size for example, then again,maybe not. It all might boil down to the fact that LINUX is a native TCP/IP OS, and NT isn't. NT is native SMB. If you want minute details of what is going on, you can set up Netmon(itor) on a workstation, or some other packet sniffer, and read packet data. I don't generally have that kind of time.

The first answer looks good to me. If that doesn't work, try something else. Hope this helps
