    Good Afternoon Gang,

    Anyone happen to have come across any solid articles, or even postings on FST, regarding CuteFTP speed optimization? I feel like my speeds between myself and the seedbox I subscribe to aren't at all being utilized.

    Appreciate the help as always

    Whats the maximum speed you can get from your home connection. Mine is 1.2mb/s, therefore i have 6 threads running at 200kb/s each.

    Also if you're on OVH they are hell for limiting FTP downloads.

    Hi H&K,

    Appreciate the reply. I'm not on that particular service you mentioned. In terms of home pc speeds, here's my speedtest image:

    Let me specify my problem. If I download a file from my seedbox which has say 20 sub files, I get a tremendous combined rate. The highest I've seen so far is about 5.2-5.5mbs. If I download one single sub file, my rate is usually below 1mbs. Are there settings I can tweak for this particular issue?

    I'm a fairly new CuteFTP client user - haven't used it in years come to think of it. And, I just recently subscribed to a seedbox so in the learning phase!

    Thanks again for the help.

    Cuteftp can multithread up to a certain point. If you feel you need to run more threads consider using 3d-ftp.
    See ya in another life, brother.

    Right on the file(folder) you like to download. Choose 'download advanced', choose 'multipart download', choose 'max 5 parts' and on you go.

    that slowdown is not an issue of the FTP client.
    if you have that kind of slowdowns when only downloading a large file, the explanation is simple: high degree of fragmentation in the server HDD and/or too many write accesses during that read. I make a weekly defrag on all my home servers and everytime i had a dedicated one. If you don't have a dedicated one, tough luck because you won't be able to defrag it.

    Appreciate the help gang ~ I'll give the multipart-download a shot and see where I go from there. In terms of the server HD, unfortunately it's a remote seedbox ~ out of my control .

    I've Max 4 parts as well LJ... Needless to say, I did try out the multipart download function, and it worked! My rate has been staying above 10+ constant... really awesome - thanks a bunch.
