Environnement studied for Alix 2D13:

OSNet provides you with a complete test for Alix boards (test has been realized using Alix 2D13 boards). This is a performance and throughput test. 

 

  • PFSense 1.2.3
  • WAN:1.1.1.2
  • LAN:192.168.0.1
  • Two computer connected : one on LAN 192.168.0.199 and one on WAN 1.2.3.4.
  • Port Forward TCP/UDP 5001 used for IPERF.
  • PFSense takes in charge NAT.
  • All links are at 100Mbits Full Duplex (auto-negociated).
  • All tests have been conducted with IPERF.
