I'm hoping someone has the answers to these questions and thanks loads if you do
I'm running a windows server in Europe as a seedbox and have to FTP the files I want to keep down to my PC in North America. I've got GENE6 FTP server installed on the server and have tried 4 different FTP clients to transfer files with. My question is...what should I realistically expect as far as transfer speeds etc.? The first client I used was CuteFTP Pro. I click a folder to download and it starts to transfer the files inside the folder. It always starts by transfering 5 files at a good clip but then begins to wind itself down to 4 at a time, 3 at a time and finally just stops. I get random errors with it like "access denied", "datasocket error" etc. After not being able to figure it out, I tried others. FTP Now simply won't connect. FTPRush and FTP Voyager work flawlessly....but, the transfer speeds are much much slower than with Cute. Rush seems to only want to download 1 file at a time and Voyager will download 1 file within a folder at a time...meaning I can download from 2 or more directories at a time but only 1 file at a time from each and like I said, the speeds are very slow compared to what I was seeing with Cute. I'm using SSL for the transfers.
Has anyone had the problem that Cute FTP is temperamental and maybe just doesn't work well with Gene6 and what did you do to fix it? This would be my preference as the speeds were great. Aside from that, do you know of any other FTP clients that work pretty much like Cute?
Edited to add....ooops, looks like I posted in the wrong section. Should be in software, apologies.
