Running XP Pro with a gigabit onboard NIC. Fairly certian that all my settings in the Filezilla software indicate no limits. I am running a small FTP server off of my desktop for some other students in my campus wing. They cannot seem to get more than 6 - 20 KB/s on any file download. There is a router running Tomato 1.21 between the server computer and the campus wing switch, which is gigabit and without any vlans (configured it myself). The clients are using the client-side Filezilla software. I HAVE read the wiki @ http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Network_Configuration
and this has not seemed to solve my problem. My Windows Firewall is configured openly, allowing full access to the FileZilla apps and each have their own exception. Additionally port 21 is open. Since they're able to download something
, it suggests that my settings must be correct to some degree - they can download 300MB files, but it takes them about a full day to do so.
(I have a small feeling that one of the end users might be using his browser to access the FTP server on my computer, but I don't know that this should have a bearing on what my upload speed might be.)
When not using the FTP server installed on my computer, my computer has achieved consistent speeds of 600KB/s download and 200KB/s upload to a FTP server in russia. Which is to say that I know my computer is capable of outputting data far beyond what it is putting out to my LAN-mates.
If you could give me any tips on how I can absolutely rule out the possibility that this is the FileZilla server software that is bottlenecking the bandwidth, and hopefully additionally any suggestions as to where the bottleneck might be, I would appreciate it. In advance, thanks so much for your time!
