oh ok, sorry about that then... i see what you mean though... it was
just in an old post i saw on the internet so i thought i would have a
try... and then when it came up about lossing packets i was worried, but
also i didnt know that the freebsd handbooks contained that type of
thing... think thats gonna be my next read :-)
ps = know of any simple stress test tools... or should i just google :-/
