I recently ran into this patch which states:
# Solved follow problems:Henry, which snapshot did this patch go in? And I assume this would mean that if I have a gigabit NIC, I will be able to use upto (theoretically) one gbps rate between colinux and windows on this interface? Is this understanding correct?
# - For connetion between Linux and Windows (Xserver) network 127.0.0.1
# can use. Network 127.x.x.x is mostly not a firewall and is faster
# as the network stack for cards.
