The 'ttcp' package is now available via setup.exe

Ttcp is a simple yet robust network throughput testing tool. 

Ttcp times the transmission and reception of data  between
two  systems  using  the UDP or TCP protocols.  It differs
from common ``blast'' tests, which  tend  to  measure  the
remote inetd as much as the network performance, and which
usually do not allow measurements at the remote end  of  a
UDP transmission.

Ttcp can also be used as a network pipe, simply copying 
sender's stdin to receiver's stdout.

There are versions of ttcp in a variety of places.
This distribution is based on Terry Slattery's version 
available at <>,
