You and me both fumbling at this - my hope was that there was something
I was overlooking - maybe filtering or firewall (I've tried this with
every part of those shut off) or even some sort of management setting on
how much bandwidth I can bring into my own box in a stretch of time.
I've tried pulling ISOs through my own webserver and ftp server on the
box, with no problems, but at the moment I don't have a working second
box available (my second computer "hosed" fried its cpu after 5 1/2
years of 24/7 operation without a reliable fan on its heatsink) - I want
(whether this happens or not depends on clients wanting to buy enough to
get a volume discount on equipment) a couple rack mountable smp units,
but *wanted* systems don't transfer files until they are actually
*bought and installed* ;)
