you could have a combined 200 Mb transfer to *and* from the same
server.  Assuming you're not uploading and downloading simultaneously,
you can't exceed 100 Mb.  Full duplex is just a max of 100 Mb in each

it's easy.

cd /usr/ports/benchmarks/iperf && make install clean

then run
iperf -s
on the server side

iperf -c x.x.x.x
on the client side, where x.x.x.x is the IP of the server.

iperf is also available for Windows as a precompiled binary, and also
for Linux, OS X, and most every other common OS.

I would run the server from one end and see what you get, then run the
server from the other end and compare.  You can get more involved than
that, but that's a good enough test.
