I have a very simple test going on, as part of our development
processes. I set up a simple ipxe script which is pulled down via a
simple chain setup in dnsmasq. That part works great.
The script looks like this:
The download speed is pretty terrible though. Very very slow, about
23kB/s. I was hoping for something much faster than tftp. Is there any
way to speed this up?
Network is a gigabit. Target machine is a VirtualBox machine with a
gigabit adapter. Server is a pretty good machine, with physical gigabit
