A query for the networking geeks in the audience…
- Box A runs Windows XP, it’s an Athlon 2000XP.
- Box B runs Debian Sarge, It’s an Athlon 1200XP.
- Box C runs Debian Stable, It’s a Celeron 300mhz.
Downloading a file from a HTTP server with Box A takes
Downloading the same file with Box B or C (Or similerly sized files from the same server, so no caching) takes
Downloading said amount of data from the same server with Box A running though a squid cache server on either B or C also takes
All are plugged into the same hub, behind the same router, on the same ASDL.
Why? And how can I fix this? (Apart from installing Linux on A, which is mostly a games box ATM, and dual boots to Gentoo anyway)
