I agree, that's right. Without this new knowledge it was hard to follow
why tcp communication did not work anymore.

It seems as if iperf does not support zero copy, only a few newer svn
trunks seem to support it. Of course there are some better tools to test
tcp performance. I just used it because this was the first tool that
came to my mind.

I will post some new results after having made some tests this evening.

so far, thanks very much for your help.
