The network interface is not artificially limited to 10Mbit. Years ago, I measured some 25Mbit on my desktop system. I suggest that you run with the latest code from https://github.com/simh/simh. Simh v3.8-1 was from a long time ago, and significant changes have been made since then. _______________________________________________ Simh mailing list Simh@trailing-edge.com http://mailman.trailing-edge.com/mailman/listinfo/simh
