      Ftp!!

      Hello folks,

      im currrently using FlashFXP to FTP to my PS3 , the problem is my speeds are shocking (1.4MB/s). i've also tried filezilla but again the speeds are garbage.

      I've disabled my firewall (AVG) and still no difference in speed, this leads me to believe it is a problem with my router and FTP.

      can anyone help?

      sagem router (black) using wired/wireless/homeplugs.....
      win7 x64

      1.4MB/s is quite good, that would require a sync speed of about 13,000 kbps. What is yours?

      I think he is talking about using FTP over his LAN so the internet sync speeds would be irrelevant.

      Are you using wireless connection at any point as that will dramatically reduce the speed at which files will transfer.

      If you are using ethernet on your PC try adjusting the speed & duplex settings in Network Connections > Right Click Your Network Card > Configure > Advanced Tab > Speed & Duplex, try setting it to auto.

      EDIT: Also try Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn windows features on or off > Uncheck ‘Remote Differential Compression’

      I think you should be getting around 7-12MB/s over a fully wired setup. I ususally get around 9-10 FTPing to my PS3 using filezilla and homeplugs aswell.

      Re: Ftp!!

      yep over my LAN

      thanks for the advice guys, surely on a wired network i should expect much better speeds than 10MB/s!!!

      anyways i was getting 7MB/s last night, it now looks like iim back to normal 1.4MB/s

      If you are on a gigabit network you could get up to 125MB/s but the maximum for 100Mb ethernet is only 12.5MB/s so 7 isn't too bad

      I think it is the old mistake of mixing bits and bytes. The theoretical maximum speed you can transfer data over a 100mbps network is 12.5MB/s, but overheads on the transmission will reduce this considerably. If you move 10MB/s you are doing well.

      FlashFXP is mainly for use over the internet, is this the only way you can transfer data to the PS3? I don't know the ins and outs of it, as I don't have a PS3, but it seems like taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

      Re: Ftp!!

      ^^ you can use an external drive but it must be formatted to fat32. i have 2 formatted to NTFS for my WDTV and backup photo's, camcorder etc. so using an external at the moment isn't an option.

      easiest way to transfer files is via FTP, ive used Flash and Filezillla and im now getting around 8MB/s. i've just transferred a 20gb file and it took ages.....

      again thanks for your help.
