IPNetTunerX

Version 1.7.1

Increase your Internet performance.

IPNetTunerX overview

IPNetTunerX is a modest application that allows you to optimize TCP/IP network performance under Mac OS X by tuning internal TCP/IP parameters to match your network environment. IPNetTunerX supports over 50 adjustable parameters including the TCP Window Size, Time Out intervals, Maximum Segment Size, and MTU.

Beyond adjusting parameters, IPNetTunerX provides tools for measuring the effect of your changes, and a Location Helper to make dynamic configuration easier.

Use our preconfigured settings for most common types of Internet connections. Or you can adjust your settings and save them in IPNetTunerX settings documents and invoke them each time you login.

While not all connections require tuning, it is often possible to improve network performance significantly by using the right parameters for your connection. IPNetTunerX makes it easy to experiment and see for yourself.

A modest application, at an immodest price. Don't fall for this overpriced one trick pony. Cocktail will tweak your network settings, along with a whole lot more, for a truly modest price. MacPilot also will, but it doesn't offer any presets, so you've got to know what you're doing. But if you're messing with these settings, it's best if you at least have an idea of what you're doing.

This application hurt network performance overall, and didn't restore my system to its previous (better) performance when I asked it to return to the defaults. I have a cable modem connection that gets me 6 Mbits/second over a wired connection to nearby internet servers, and I was interested in seeing if I could improve download speeds from distant servers. After applying the presets for "Cable Modem", I began getting only 4 Mbits/second from the same nearby servers -- a 33% DECREASE in speed. After asking it to restore the defaults, I started getting less than 3 Mbits/second -- a 50% decrease from vanilla Mac OS X. And it's a little disturbing that when I asked it to turn itself off, instead what I got was further slowing of the connection. A nice idea, not ready for prime time.

I was actually very surprised by the performance benefits yielded by tuning my system. I expected that performance tuning would only yield 1-2 % ... when actually I received benefits of up to 50% in certain circumstances.. the cost of the IPNetTunerX comes close to the cost of 1 month of high speed service from my ISP, so in a way you could say it pays for itself in a month... I was really surprised.

I haven't seen any difference with other tuners. I'll have to try this and see if it makes a difference.

An already superfast cable connection made even faster by this app. And that's without any advanced tweaking. I'm impressed!

For Pete's sake...I even tried to download from the author's site and was told that their FTP server is not recognized by my situation. I have NEVER gotten a message like this ever! Now I am cannot take teh day and test this out because I can't even download it and it's something that might really help me. Bah!

I've been curious about this app for several months. My connection speed is nothing to brag about so I hope tuning it with IPNTX will help. Hope I can figure out correct parameters somehow.

Interesting. There's been tools like this for a while. Wonder why it should be different. Will try out the trial...
