I only have to say "Sorry, I don't know" for this question. :-) I hope other more experienced folks in this list will help you. I can give you just a thought however. If you have such massive requirements if I were you I would do the socket handling inside the kernel itself. That way you avoid the very expensive user space/kernel space context switch and also go in for some embedded system suited for this sort of thing. Perhaps I am talking rubbish. If so please pardon me. :-) Best of luck! regards, Girish _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
