i currently run a 24 person tfc server on a 2.5meg adsl line with a 10/100 netcard

maxrate set to 5000
server is dedicated p450 which is only using 40% of the processor at max players so it is more than fast enough
10/100 network switch
my adsl connection can handle a 32 man server so thats not the prob

server runs great but sometimes i get abnormal pl on my second machine when i play (p933 with 10/100 net card as well)

any ideas how to minimize pl in general?

esp between the 2 machines?
