Hi Massimo,

>"busy surviving" is not a justification

No, it's not.  It is a reason.  Roderick in not trying to justify
anything.  Let's just say Roderick's written English loses something in
the translation.

This makes sense to me.  Nothing you have done will completely address the
perforance issues.

>so i don't believe the stuff of ring0 and ring3

You can choose to believe what you want.  It's a free country.  With your
extensive developement skill and techincal knowledge of driver internals,
I'm sure you know exactly where the problems are.  I'm waiting for you to
explain to us how to solve then.

>since if you play with the "intermediary parameters" of packet assembling
>you get speed improvements

You said it yourself.  You get improvement.  However, you have yet to find
a set of intermediary parameters that provide you the performance you
desire.  This should tell you something.

This assumes that your so-called correct settings exist.  What do you
think is going on here.  There are a few folks on this list that are still
using ijfw.  Do you think they know the correct settings and are simply
unwilling to share them with you?

>the documentation are still very old PDFs (some it's even hard to open
>nowadays) from FX firm, they have been never updated by the new software

Think about why this may be.  Perhaps nothing has changed in the ijfw
internals that warrants updating the manuals.

I have no idea what you are doing wrong.  I routinely modify rules while
accessing the server over a secure VNC connection and have never had that
happen to me

If you mess up a rule because you did not test it before updating the
production system, well what can I say?

>did they tested the software on a modern connection?

This kind of stupid comment is sure to get you an immediate response from
the vendor.

You seem to have a poor grasp of history.  FX.DK stopped development of
the ijfw approximately 2008.  For all practical purposes the product was
dead  Bitwise purchased the rights to the software probably about 2011
hoping that they could generate sufficient sales to resurrect the product.
4.2 was release sometime around 2014.  It is now 2021.  The performance of
the product was just fine for circa 2005 networks.  Times change.

BTW, what version of fxwrap.sys are you running?
