Just be aware of which equipment you’re effectively testing for bufferbloat.  A server based elsewhere on the Internet will mean that the test traffic goes through your ISP and your modem, which will probably hold the bottleneck queues for downstream and upstream respectively.  By using two of your own computers, you would instead test an individual piece of equipment such as a router placed between them, or the NICs of the two machines themselves.
