->1) "6mbps link, which is roughly 3megs/sec" is inaccurate 
->   6 Mbits is roughly 600kilobytes/second
->
->2) A common way to speed up transfers is to tune your 
->   tcp window sizes using /sbin/sysctl.
->   The two you may wish to lok at are:
->      net.inet.tcp.sendspace
->      net.inet.tcp.recvspace
->   try values like 128000 and 256000
->   Doing so so on bnoth machien sshould increase your throughput.
->
->   A good reference for all the syctl variable is available at
->   http://people.freebsd.org/~adrian/sysctl.descriptions, 
->   the freebsd manual may have em soemwhere but i cant recall 
->   where.
