The aim of this study is to quantify performance of network file transfer for research testbed. This study was carried out because Internet users nowadays has surfing tendency to stream video, download and upload video which need more Internet bandwidth. In addition, there is also a requirement for clarification between theoretical and actual performance of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). This study is important for researchers and network administrators because output from this study is useful for them as an input for simulation and decision making process. Testbed used for this study consists of computers, network switch, server and routers. Multiple sizes of files were transferred by using multiple sizes of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Window and IP address version. Result from the test shows that there is a performance gap for file transfer between different IP address versions. More study in this research area will be done because there is a need for enhancement in IP based network performance.
