Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I can transfer file at 2MBps using ftp.I need to increase it to 5MBps,I tried changing following values in /etc/sysctl.conf
# increase TCP max buffer size setable using setsockopt()
net.core.rmem_max = 16777216
net.core.wmem_max = 16777216
# increase Linux autotuning TCP buffer limits
# min, default, and max number of bytes to use
# set max to at least 4MB, or higher if you use very high BDP paths
net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 16777216
net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 65536 16777216
and then executed sysctl -p,
but then too there is no change in the transfer speed.Can anyone please guide me how to increase the ftp transfer speed.I am using vsftp.
Then I would suggest that the path between them has restrictions, are there any firewalls between the two machines ? ... also can you ensure both machines are connected at least at 100 Mb full duplex ?
Using the default interface 'eth0'.
Basic registers of MII PHY #1: 3100 786d 0243 0c54 01e1 4de1 0003 0003.
The autonegotiated capability is 01e0.
The autonegotiated media type is 100baseTx-FD.
Basic mode control register 0x3100: Auto-negotiation enabled.
You have link beat, and everything is working OK.
Your link partner advertised 4de1: Flow-control 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx 10baseT.
End of basic transceiver information.
I have tested ftp transfer without I/O transfer as
ftp> put "|dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=100" /dev/null,
I am getting ftp transfer speed upto 37MB/s.
I am accessing the files from pendrive for ftp transfer,
and the output of hdparm -t /dev/sda1 is
hdparm -t /dev/sda1
Timing buffered disk reads: 28 MB in 3.09 seconds = 9.07 MB/sec
