Hi and excuses for my poor english. In my network there are 150 hosts and some of them use P2P programs. Two days ago I introduced a Windows 2003 machine with BWM.
I didn't add any rule and insert the machine in the network to test the performance of the bridge. When I ping to the server, the response time is 1ms but there are a packet loss of 10%. I'm using two IBM ETHERJET 10/100 PCI with intel pro chipset in a DURON 1300/768 MB RAM.
I will create 2 rules for each host (one download, one upload) and some general rules. Can your software really handle this work?
