    Question Mark

    Evening Gang,

    Quick question, well possibly quick: I'm currently sharing a seedbox with a dear friend. We're both on different ISPs - he being on Comcast and myself on Cablevision. My rates while downloading via FTP from our seedbox are usually 10mbit+ on average, spiking considerably higher at times. On the contrary, my good friend is lucky to see 1mbit.

    What could the possible problem be on his end?
    Is it his ISP (i.e. Comcast) interfering?
    Could his FTP application not be properly setup?

    Any comments, advice and direction would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks FST.

    Ask him to try downloading with multiple threads.

    A download manager or CuteFTP will do.
    Back after going through many ordeals of paying for my internet.

    Yea he's been using CuteFTP, and as I recommended to him - try multiple threads, but no luck unfortunately... Any other possible reasons for slow speeds? Is it possible Comcast is giving him a hard time?

    it's exactly what you call multithreading the setting pointed out.
    Try a different client, as some negotiate packets in different ways.
    as for multithreaded clients, i strongly recommend 3d-FTP 8.04
