Is anyone here familiar with running WhitePine's
Reflector software?

The reflectors, versions 2.1, are running on a SUN SparcStation
and a DEC Alpha. I am seeing slow downs when the number
of connected clients reaches about 12-15. The limits I have set
for the users are 15k max send 5k min send, 28k max rec 5k min rec.
The network has up to 4 T1 lines connecting it to the Internet.
Some users say they have been on reflectors with up to 50 clients
connected and the performance was fine. While I find this hard to
believe, I don't think 25 clients connected to these system should
Be slow.

Thanks for any suggestions on possible settings for the reflectors.
