   True, we usually find Linux based machines work better running IPerf
   then Windows (at least out of the box) because of the TCP window
   size....well Windows XP at least, don't know about Vista or 7.

Please take note with using iperf that you'll want to make sure the
appropriate TCP Window Size has been negotiated.  We recently did some
testing with systems that had decided to pick less than optimal window sizes
and in turn had to manually set the size within iperf options.

Anyone have a good solution to get "accurate" speed results when testing at
10/100/1000 Ethernet speeds?

Do you have a server/software that customer can test too?
