Is it possible to use a Fibre Channel PCIe adapter as a network interface? Certainly you can run IP on FC (RFC 2625) but it'll never work with your switch as that's specifically an Ethernet switch, it would need to connect to an FC switch. By the way, just because you can do this doesn't make it a good idea, in fact it's a staggeringly rare setup, for ...

This is expected behavior when you have unmatched speed and are running mismatched speeds. If you are able to saturate the 1GB link, the other end will have read only 100 packets by the time you have sent the 1000 packets. It is unlikely your router will buffer the remaining 900 packets. UDP is an unreliable protocol. Unlike TCP it does not come with a ...

The I/O model in Windows is based on a stack of components. Data must flow through the various components of that stack that exists between the physical network card, and the application that will consume the data. Sometimes those various components inspect the data (a TCP packet for example,) as they flow through the stack, and based on the contents of that ...

If this is a modern router, yes the straight connection would work. Unless you need to make it like this, avoiding termination points and just simply running the wires would work better. But if the connections/sockets are done well, this should not have any significant performance and stability issues. You just need to remember not to put 2 computers there. ...

As you may have noticed through the years, the specifications of Ethernet cables have been improved to allow for faster and faster speeds without impacting the capability of reaching good distances (around 100 meters). Lots of tiny details impact how the cable can provide such a good signal impermeability. While nothing will stop you from trying what you ...

Probably what's happening is that you're seeing IPv6 broadcast traffic on your subnet, as per what you posted from a tcpdump output here: 12:19:41.622297 IP6 (hlim 1, next-header UDP (17) payload length: 112) fe80::a4a0:460b:c99a:c992.dhcpv6-client > ff02::1:2.dhcpv6-server: [udp sum ok] dhcp6 solicit (xid=455863 (elapsed-time 700) (client-ID hwaddr/time ...
