Fastest File Transfer Protocol


Im gonna be setting up a PXE Server to serve out Installation Files from a File Server throughout a network, What Protocol will support the fastest way to distribute these files, nfs, ftp (vftpd) nfs, Http(Apache), to about 30 Users at once. Also will it even be able to handle 30 over the network installs, we use fast Cisco Hubs 10/100 We have a P4 1.7Ghz 512MB RAM Computer Serving thr images and files. Will this be adeqate thanx

In my (humble) opinion yes, I don't see why not. I would have thought that FTP would be the best way to serve up files - of course it depends how big the files are :)

I'm not really familiar with over the network installs - basically if they use any real system load then it tends to be a no no - think about what happens when 30 people do it :(

Good luck

Steve
