In the CDP-F software advanced tab, there is a setting called Maximum Remote Transfer Rate. It says in the help file that if you need to ease the burden on your network you can adjust this field.
Can someone explain what this field is actually adjusting?
If the NSS3000 can link to a 1GB speed network, and if my switch is a 10/100(Mbps) switch and my workstation network card is a 1Gps newtork card than it stands to reason that my fastest rate will be that of the slowest part, that is 100Mbps when switched.
So what does this field actually control?
What kind of error messages will I see if this field is not set properly?
Does this setting affect the through put of the host workstation connecting to the NAS over the network?
