Packet Flooder on Windows 8

A comment about using NetScanTools Pro v11 Packet Flooder on Windows 8. The default settings will only get you about 40% saturation on Win 8 32 or 64 bit. Our recent tests on 8-64 show that if you change the Data Payload Length to Fixed and select the MTU (usually 1460) or slightly below, you can get 95% saturation. Microsoft has changed some of the way the network layer operates since Windows 7.
