why slow; why multicast?


Recommended Posts

or is it just me :)




Mac Retrospect on a 6100/60, backing up across a Ethernet 10m connection, logs at 25megs a minute write, 50 megs a minute read.




Windows Retrospect, on a 1.4 gig Athlon, no other processes, backing up a local drive to an internal cdr, gives me exactly the same rate.




I have a switch, not a router, yet multicasting does not work... the demo won't recognize my existing Mac clients... though I can click the advanced networking tab and test they are there using their specific local IP#'s [local network, yes]. Nothing in between the $89 and the $600 models of the software.




Are these fixable problems? I was going to buy this software, but with these problems, no chance.
