    OK, here's the scoop..

    You know all those online "speed test" pages that are everywhere? Well, I need something that returns those results, but be able to run from the command line and dump the reults to a txt file.

    At work, were upgrading our DSL connection and we need to be able to see if it is actually any better. So, I am hoping there is a program out there that can be run from the command prompt, connect to a speed test server and dump the results to a file.

    So, long story short, I'm looking for a web-based speed test, but not web-based :D

    You don't mention which OS, but Google for tools like bing, tptest, netperf, iperf, and so on. You may also want to "man spray", but use spray carefully.

    ftp is built into winblows use that if you're running a winblows os.... servers like dlink, xs4all, isps's and big name companies have lots of bandwidth to use for various speed-tests...
