I wouldn't say it is easy either.. I have never got it before getting a
few TB over the "wire". I've got proto=tcp in /proc/mounts for the
mountpoints, so I'd assume that I use TCP.

There is an Extreme Networks switch in the other end, I havent got
hardware to actually test that with a different card, so I cannot rule
the switch out either. .. but it would be strange.
