FTP Troubles

Recommended Posts

Ok I have verizon fios with the package 15/2, i get the speeds I pay for but I am having a problem when downloading from FTP's.  When I download something from a HTTP I will get the full speed of 1.5mb/s but when I download off an ftp it will max out at 600kb/s and will not exceed.  But if I open up three ftp clients, and download at the same time, I will get a steady 500kb/s meaning I am getting the speed I want, but why cant I just use one client and get 1.5mb/s.  I know it is not the server im getting my information from and I am pretty sure it is not my client.  It just doesn't make sense.  Can anyone help or provide an explanation?

The FTP server controls the amount of bandwidth that you are allowed. I set up a test FTP server to a DS3 connection to test a ADSL2+ connection between two central offices and was getting 15Mbps. The ADSL2+ line was set to 18Mbps down & 1.2Mbps up.
