I just finished installing Redhat 9 on a new system designed specifically for lan file storage. I have about 500 gigabytes of data to backup and im expierencing preformance issues transfering the data from XP to Linux.

For example I logged into the linux box via ftp and was only getting 6 - 8 mbp/s from both directions. After playing with the MTU a bit on both systems I found that 6000 gave these results. Now its transfering at

XP >> Linux 48.08 Mb/s
XP << Linux 11.01 Mb/s

Both system have identical hardware. Only the OS is different. Is there anyway to find the "perfect" MTU and TCP window sizes for this setup? Also how do I change TCP send/recieve window in Redhat 9? I use drtcp in XP.

The systems are connected via CAT5E crossover cable (thats about 20 ft. long) there are no problems with the cable as I have tried several different brands and lengths with the same results.
My knowledge of linux is very limited and I would appreciate any insight.

Thanks in Advance.
