I have never had good results using the jack_net_master/slave or
jack_netsource. Netjack2 where the master has jack_load netmanager run
after jack is running and the slave(s) are started with jackd -d net has
worked quite well for me. See:
I am not saying the other ones are broken, just that I never figured them
out. Also note that when I was playing with it, I had some rather marginal
machines. My master was a P4 (simgle core) which was fine but my slave had
less than .5gb ram and ran at less than 1Ghz.
For transporting audio, Zita-j2n/n2j works really well.
