I am evaluating UDPcast for cloning a whole LAN. It seems to be a
wonderful program, although I have a couple of problems.
In the changelog page, it is reported that version 20070622 fixed a lzop
blocksize issue. Since I always use lzop compression, I guess I should
update to this latest version... but I cannot find it anywhere. I always
use cast-o-matic to generate a custom ISO, but it generates one with the
old 20070602 version. Would it be possible to update cast-o-matic to the
latest one or make a ready-made ISO bootable CD image available somewhere?
Ooops. It was present all along, but I somehow completely forgot to update
the pointers in the HTML file... This is now fixed.
When I clone many PCs, I always get many retransmissions in full-duplex
mode. In the tuning hints page, it is suggested to lowering the slice
size with the "--slice-size" option.
Another thing to check is whether you do indeed have a full-duplex network.
If not, use half-duplex mode. Older hub-based 10Mbps networks are half-duplex.
How can I do that via cast-o-matic?
You can set this using the "Additional Udpcast command-line parameters"
setting on the second page of the configurator
What's the config parameter to change and what do
you suggest as a safe
Try 128, and then increase or decrease as you see fit.
Thanks very much for your inputs!
