What do you mean ?
Improve SNADS performance, improve AnyNet performance, or inflate FTP
functionality to SNADS level ?

Of course, SNADS is slower, than FTP - but that is because of so many
things it does, which FTP does not.
Actually, raw transfer speed of SNADS is not much lower than FTP. Spooling
distribution, maintaining queues, processing distribution lists etc - this
is what takes time.

Take two extreme cases:
 - if you need to send one file to one destination, then FTP is MUCH faster
 - if you need to send a library-full of files to a 1000 target systems (in
different time zones, which can be up or down, with their links to your
system functional or not), then SNADS is MUCH faster.

Subject:  SNADS over ANYNET TCP/ip





While one can do SNADS over ANYNET, I am told that the performance is just
for the birds.  Sending a file via TCP/IP is MUCH, MUCH  faster and takes
less resources than sending the same file over SNADS.

Does anyone care about the performance issue on SNADSing data via ANYNET to
an IP address?  Would a better MORE EFFICIENT method of sending data that
is more efficient be more important than trying SNADS over ANYNET?
