OT: Effective Speed of 10BaseT

I just tried FTPing a 20MB file to the VMS box from the Mac. I got
615KB/sec, which works out to about 36.9MB/minute. So, I think it's safe
to say that both AppleTalk and Samba performance under VMS suck! Though I
guess I should look into if any tuning of AppleTalk performance is possible
since it's not dependant on TCP/IP.

Glad the FTP performance is that good since I'm wanting to back data files
on the Mac up to the VMS box via Retrospect which allows backup via FTP.
