Howdy peoples...

Just a question that I have regarding PPP speed.

When under linux and I ftp somthing from one of our ftp sites
ftp says that the max speed I get is about 2.4 k / sec but under Windoze
95 I get 25K sec? - This is to the same site under the same
internet provider at approx. same time.

Is there something that I am doing wrong under Linux.

To connect to my Internet Provider I am using chat + pppd.
The line in the script file that I am using is as follows :-)

exec /usr/sbin/pppd debug lock modem crtscts /dev/modem 38400 \
asyncmap 20A0000 escape FF kdebug 0 $LOCAL_IP:$REMOTE_IP \
noipdefault netmask $NETMASK defaultroute connect $DIALER_SCRIPT

Thanks in advance.
