    Hi all!

    I have a couple of basic (Redhat) linux systems here and am trying to
    test the max. available bandwidth on the link between them.

    Is rcp usable for this? Or does this command, like scp, have some
    built-in bandwidth limiter?

  2. What kind of "built-in bandwidth limiter" has scp?
