[ENet-discuss] Bandwidth throttling?

Hello Lee, hello all,

I have a streaming server where I have a rather high outgoing bandwidth
(14Mbit) and I set the server and client to 0 limit that is unlimited or no
bandwidth limitation. I have several clients connecting on LAN and at most
if one gets lagged behind that is that (a low end machine that has to cope
with the bandwidth but it does not affect the rest). Now the weird part. I
told a friend of mine to connect from the other side of the globe and all
of a sudden both of us are lagged. I see on the server that it gets updated
and indeed generates the data as it should but now both of us are throttled
to the very limited bandwidth of my friend even if my other client is on
the LAN. I am sending with ENET_PACKET_FLAG_UNSEQUENCED so neither of us
should be affected by the other (waiting for a packet to arrive). What
gives? I tried it to someone geographically not far away and it was smooth.

The packets are large and unreliable and broadcasted (tried it sending to
individual peers but it did not change a thing).
