    I am using Fetch to upload pdf files to an ftp site. Uploading the files (they average 1-3MB) is pretty darn slow, but downloading goes much quicker. The people running the ftp site swear there's nothing wrong on their end. I tried uploading to the fetchsoftworks site...that was slow too. Any ideas (solutions)???
    THANKS!

    Most Internet connections are asymmetric -- faster downloading than uploading. What sort of transfer rates are you seeing, and what kind of Internet connection do you have (e.g. cable modem, DSL, dial-up)?

    We have T1 line in office but I am having same issue. from G5 MAC, upload speed is 60 kb/sec, download speed is 1500 kn/sec. Same file uploading from Windows XP to same server, I get 300 kb/sec from windows machine using WSftp client. On G5 I use, fetch.

    Please help me.

    tusharm:

    I'm surprised that you're only seeing 60KB/sec, and I'm very surprised that you're getting 300KB/sec with WSFTP. 300KB/sec works out to 2.4Megabits/sec, and a T1 line's maximum speed is 1.5Megabits/sec. So you shouldn't see more than 192KB/sec over that sort of connection (and that's assuming 100% efficiency, and no one else using the connection). Are you sure that WSFTP is not showing you Kilobits per second (rather than Kilobytes; there are 8 bits in a byte)?

    Thanks,
