I'm running a pair of NetBSD systems that are nearly connected to each other,
and I've noticed the following:
When they're on ethernet together, they're fast (~300k/s).
When one of them talks to a linux box through ethernet, it's fast (~300k/s).
When one of them talks to a linux box through ppp, it's tolerable (~1.5k/s on
a 14.4 line).
When one of them talks to the other *through* the linux box, it's horrid
(~3k/minute), and I get 10-15 second lags on telnet connections.
They're both okay to decent even talking to machines halfway across the Net.
Am I missing something obvious?
Also, when I'm telnetted from one to the other through linux, vi does
strange and mysterious things; it doesn't seem to successfully send
vt100 clear to end of lines... I can't figure out why. ???
None of these problems occur telnetting to or from either system to
I'm wondering if the machine that's ethernetted to the linux box is maybe
assuming that it's using ethernet, or something similar? I don't know
how the TCP/IP stuff goes well enough to make coherent suggestions.
