Question FTP - Fast Downloads - SLOW UPLOADS?


I am running Red Hat 6.2

I am unable to upload to my remote Linux Box. The transfe rate immediately decays. This is not the problem with downloading. everything works fine - the rates are normal.

Where do I start to solve this one?
Is it a security issue? Is is throttling?

Please Help! I have been trying to upload some much needed files.

Thanks in Advance -

Are you on a broadband connection with caps on upload speed?

How slow is slow?

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.
