Using AmiTCP 4.0eval and PPP 1.30eval, I get around 1000 cps with a 14.4k
modem. This was about what I expected from the evaluation version of PPP.
While I was briefly experimenting with Linux 0.9.x, I got several hundred
cps better. Again, this was what I expected, because Linux is not a demo
and has VJ compression enabled. Now the problem: for various reasons, I
decided to run NetBSD 1.0 instead of Linux. However, when using PPP I
have never gotten better speed than under AmigaDOS, and quite often I get
several hundred cps worse. Is NetBSD's implementation of PPP just
inefficient at this stage (although I believe it includes VJ compression),
or do I have something mis-configured?
