IPNetTuner 1.5 Adds Speed Tests

Send Article to a Friend

IPNetTuner 1.5 Adds Speed Tests -- Wonder how fast your Internet connection really is or worry that you're not getting the bandwidth you should? Sustainable Softworks' just-released IPNetTuner 1.5 adds speed tests to the network utility's Open Transport optimization capabilities (Mac OS 9-only). IPNetTuner now also includes configurations that automatically tune Open Transport for common connection types. Open Transport optimization is a black art, so the included configurations help get you started, and the real-time performance graphs provide the feedback you need to see if your changes are useful. IPNetTuner 1.5 costs $25, and updates from previous versions are free. It's a 544K download. [ACE]
