Rick, I tried to use netperf between my x86-64 and sparc64 systems and nothing works. Does netperf do it's messaging in cpu byte order only? I don't see anything in netperf-2.5.x that translates into and out of network byte order :-/
David -netperf sends things in network byte order. It is all burried in send/recv_request and send/recv_response (in src/netlib.c). Over the years I've run netperf between different endian systems with success. Chances are good that there is a netperf version mismatch between the sides - at least 99 times out of 10 that is what is happening when netperf doesn't work (other than with firewalls in place).
