windows file transfer

Hi

I am looking at a windows file transfer it say the speed of the transfer is 150KB/s

It is going over a WAN connection, am i correct in saying then that this line is running at around 2.4 mb/s

cheers



Well, 150kBps is theoretically X8 for 1.2Mbps. 8 bits per byte.
I usually use X10 bits per byte coming back the other way (for overhead).
So 150kBps might be around 1.5Mbps or, said another way, a 1.5Mbps bandwidth might yield 150kBps transfer rate.

Going "backwards" this way, if the overhead is quite high then one might need 2.4Mbps bandwidth but that's a very fuzzy number. It's better to know where the numbers come from but I would say that it's not correct.
