I've got two routers connected by ethernet to each other.

Whereas I want to simulate a 1Mbps link between these two I have put a 1meg rate limit as input & output in connecting interfaces.

rate-limit input 1000000 ....

rate-limit output 1000000 ....

The problem is when I tranfer a file between these two (I've a web server behind one) , the downloader can't go faster than 35KB!!!!

I expected at least 100KB without the burst which would also allow more!!!

Is there anything wrong with my idea to simulate a 1mbps link between these two routers.
