      Nice, thanks for putting in the public domain. I have some issues with the results though. Perhaps you can explain. I see rather large difference in numbers reported by netio and ftp. specifically

      Done.

      I think these should be about the same. Am I missing anything?

      Thanks, does precisely what I was looking for!
      Thanks for this very useful utility, it is precisely what I was

      looking for. It compiled without any problems on my Apple

      PPC PowerBook (OS X 10.4.11) with "make macosx".

      My first speed test resulted in 94Mbps between my macmini

      and my powerbook. These were connected over cat5e cable

      and a gigabit router. With the 100Mbps ethernet ports on

      both the macmini and the powerbook that makes perfect

      sense.

      The main reason for me being interested in NETIO is to test

      a pair of Netgear XE104 Powerline 4-Port Ethernet Adapters

      that will be arriving in in a few days.

      Great Util
      This is a great little utility, and thanks for precompiling for all the platforms (located in the /bin dir in the zipfile)

      thx :)

      Perhaps if you gave some idea of what exactly you couldn't get working and what you did, people would be able to help.

      FWIW - netio is not open source, it is for non-commercial use only. Unfortunately.

      On the other hand, what is the point of an open source project if I can't make it work??? I agree, we should all be grateful to everyone that contributes to open source projects, and believe me, I am, but PLEASE try to make your projects as easy to get working as possible. I can't contribute to your project if I'm not smart enough to make it work.
