Hello dear Cygwin community,

I want to use iPerf3.exe in an commercial projekt. iPerf uses the MIT
License but needs cygwin1.dll in order to function correctly.

I need to distribute iperf3.exe in our commercial software, but we cant
release the source code of this product. We do not modify cygwin1.dll, just
distribute and the iPerf3.exe is only called as an seperate process.

Does cygwin license allow this and if not is there anyone you can contact
for other licensing options which do not force you to give out the source

Thank you in advance!
