comment Windows 2008 Server on mixed ethernet speeds — download from share slow, but fast plain TCP
I was thinking more Disk IO problems. Your scripts really only test network performance, and disk I/O from the sending system. Just trying to rule out disk IO performance issues on the receiving end.

I completely forgot to take into consideration that straight transfers over raw TCP operate normally. I noticed that your in your raw TCP Transfer, your are redirecting the output on the receiving end to the null device. Have you tried redirecting it to an actual file? Could we be looking at Disk IO propblems?

comment Is there a generic way to tell if a username is valid on a Unix-like given system?
Generally, getent will hook into NIS and LDAP. getent should be calling the appropriate C library calls to pull user ID information. As long as LDAP or NIS is setup correctly on a system, the getent command will return information about those entries.
