How to test connection speed between two Windows servers?
Connect to your Windows servers via RDP and follow these steps for each server:
Download the latest version of the iPerf utility.
Note: The utility uses port 5201 for a connection. Make sure that port 5201 is opened in Windows firewall. Alternatively, disable firewall on both servers temporary.
Put the content of the iPerf folder (files
cygwin1.dll) to C:\ drive.
Start a command prompt as an Administrator and switch to C:\ drive:
C:\> cd C:\
Start the iPerf utility:
On the source server, run:
C:\> iperf3.exe -s
On the destination server, run:
C:\> iperf3.exe -s -c "ip_address_of_source"
On both servers, the iPerf utility will output stats regarding throughput speed. It is advised to use this utility to determine connection problems.
