I am on Dial up
I am on Dial Up - and slow is 100 Bytes/second,
It starts at 8 K then immediately decays..4K 2K 1K .5K until the pacKet times out.
It seems as though this is a security feature.
I will be replacing the box with a windows box (as I write this) and see what my transfer rates are on that FTP Server.
That will at least tell me if my problem is isolated to the Linux FTP Server.
