Many thanks!

It will be difficult with a stop watch. Ethereal is a fine network 
protocol analyzer. If you have one of the usual Linux distros installed, 
you're likely to already have it. BTW it's free software, and easily 
ourperforms commercial tools that cost > 1000 EUR.


If you want to try it, just say "Capture/Start", choose the interface and 
"OK". Stop when you're finished and look at "Tools/Summary". The best is, 
if you capture only during the transfer, so the result is not influenced 
by human interaction with the browser.

Not yet. Anyway I wanted to purchase Minerva, because you and Lau have 
kindly placed it under the GPL, which deserves some recognition.

All the best
