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.

There is some bug on lftp 4.4.10 (slackware64-current).
The transfer rate is too slow when I use that version (sometime < 1kb), specially in function 'mirror' during the retrieve file listing (the single file transfer somtime obtains a good speed).
Is not the adsl problem.
I tried to roll-back to 4.4.9 and I obtain a fastest connection.
We (users of slacky.eu community) found the problem during download alienbob's multilib
# lftp -c 'open http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/ ; mirror current'
about 45min to give directory content
the same command with lftp 4.4.9: about 2 seconds to get directory content.
Not that I know if there is a bug here, but what I'd do is first issue 'deb 9' inside lftp to turn on max debugging.
It could be that the functionality has changed in the newer version, such that it's issuing different FTP commands than the previous one which is adding delay. I would be more descriptive, but it's been ages since I had to debug FTP so I can't recall - but if you do deb 9 on both versions and see a difference in the FTP commands being issued, it might allow you to revert to the previous behaviour.
es, I tried with other sites, with the same result.
The ftp protocol have not problems.
In debug mode I can notice the high latency (but the debug mode does not show time of request) and a large number of disconnections for timeout.
Now I've not the pc, so I can't post output, but that output isn't really significant becouse lftp 4.4.9 generate exactly the same (that is the http header of all requests)
i can confirm that this bug is reproduceable, even though i can't find any git commits that are relevant to this regression. I have tested to revert some of their commits, but still it has the same effect.
