Transfer speeds on Windows 10 significantly slower than Mac OS X

#1 Post by APSL » 2019-06-29 19:11

I'm downloading from the same server using SFTP; it's significantly slower on Windows 10 than on the latest version of Mac OS X. This is consistent through time. Namely, on Windows 10 I'm getting roughly 700k/sec speeds per file, but on Mac OS X I'm getting between 2 and 8 MiB/sec speeds per file.

Pertinent facts:
- Win 10 is connected via Cat6 cable directly to router, Mac OS X is Wifi
- CPU utilization is not high, and have tried making FileZilla a high priority in Task manager, didn't do anything
- I'm running Windows 10 Firewall Control which doesn't impact anything when I disable it
- Tried turning Windows Defender firewalls all off; didn't impact anything. Same with Avast and Malwarebytes.
- Same ISP, same server, and same times of day. I have 100Mbit bandwidth downstream on home connection.
- FileZilla versions are both updated to latest (3.42.1 on Windows 10)
- If I add another file (2 simultaneously) in Win 10, it does -another- 700k/sec transfer, for a total of 1.4. However each file is capped at 700k and I've tested this quite a bit.

I can't seem to figure out a way around this limitation. Perhaps if there's a way to split one file into multiple pieces that would help but I'd like to use SFTP.

Ideas? Thanks for your help.

If you ping the server, what's the latency?
