[CentOS] CLI speed tester for CentOS?

I'd like to run a CLI broadband speed tester on my CentOS server.
I downloaded "tespeed" from <http://sourceforge.net/projects/tespeed/>.
This ran fine under Fedora-19, but failed under CentOS
with the message "# reject large message",
although from a quick look at the source
it did not seem to be using a large test-file.

Does anyone know of an alternative CLI speed-tester for CentOS?
Or how to get this one to work under CentOS?
