Hi Igor

I'd love to test with iperf but it seems to do nothing for me.

On my "server" :

[root at mailstorage-1 iperf-1.7.0]# ./iperf -s -B
Server listening on TCP port 5001
Binding to local address
TCP window size: 85.3 KByte (default)
[  4] local port 5001 connected with port 33688

on the client :

[root at mailstorage-2 iperf-1.7.0]# ./iperf -c
Client connecting to, TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 16.0 KByte (default)

nothing changes. From what I can see, it should output some bandwidth
figures after 10 seconds ?

when I kill the client the server shows :

[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  4]  0.0-270.1 sec  0.00 Bytes  0.00 bits/sec

I tried again, using the bind address of the 1Gb adapter, but same
