Compiling iperf under cygwin (iperf.exe win32)

Use the setup.exe that is part of cygwin to select and install the official iPerf packages for cygwin.

iPerf is included in the net group. Select the src box too if you want that.

After it has run, you can find the files in /usr/src

Follow the instructions to extract the distribution using

   1:  cd /usr/src
   3:  cygport iperf-2.0.4-1.cygport all
   5:  cd /usr/src/iperf-2.0.4-1/src/iperf-2.0.4
   7:  ./configure
   9:  ./make

.csharpcode, .csharpcode pre
font-size: small;
color: black;
font-family: consolas, “Courier New”, courier, monospace;
background-color: #ffffff;
/*white-space: pre;*/
.csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; }
.csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; }
.csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; }
.csharpcode .str { color: #006080; }
.csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; }
.csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; }
.csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; }
.csharpcode .html { color: #800000; }
.csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; }
.csharpcode .alt
background-color: #f4f4f4;
width: 100%;
margin: 0em;
.csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; }

will then all work just like it does under a unix proper, you will get an iperf.exe in the src directory.

The iperf binary will also get installed in /usr/bin/
