Don't use NETBLT. Not yet. NETBLT is an *experiment* in high-speed
bulk data transfer. It works best over long-delay, high-bandwidth
(i.e. satellite) networks, although it gives very good performance on
othre networks as well. Although a proposed spec is available, we are
actively discouraging people from implementing it until we decide
whether or not the experiment works. We are currently testing NETBLT
over the Wideband network with fairly good results, but a lot of work
needs to be done tuning the spec before anyone can use NETBLT.
