Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Proftpd Speed Issues...

Posted by: saxon Nov 12 2002, 12:21 AM

Well, i've setup proftpd, and it's running fine and all, however, there is a speed issue happening with it, it's over a local network, and i can upload files at 900KB/s+ yet the most i can download at (including after i've played with the conf) is 130K/s, does anyone know how i can upload at greater speeds?

try setting your transfer type to active connection in your ftp client
i think that is what the type is called....if not....uncheck anywhere
that is says passive type

see if that helps

nope, didnt appear to do much sad.gif, i think it's more of a server-side setting :

i really dont think its a server side setting..
Are you transfering files over a LAN or the internet?

(over lan)

i found out what it was, i was running my network adapter on my machine as auto mode, and i changed it to full duplex, and now it works like a charm

thanks for yer help smile.gif
