Limiting Upload Speeds (3 posts)

    Strange as this may sound, is there any way of limiting the upload speed to my server when using Fetch ? Every-time I upload files to my server my Ping go's from about 35 (very good) to over 2-3,000 !! These stats are according to my ISP Technical guys, who were watching me uploading files with Fetch at their end on the phone.

    Basically I am unable to upload files and surf at the same time. Fetch simply hogs all the bandwith (both up and down).

    As an experiment I downloaded FileZilla and uploaded using that to the same server and the same thing happened....

    I then limited the upload speed in FileZilla's preferences presto it works...albiet at a slower rate. But at least I can surf and upload at the same time.

    Can someoone please explain how I can set up Fetch so I can browse web pages / email whilst Fetch is uploading.

    Many thanks, David

    Hi David,

    I'm sorry, but there isn't a way to limit upload speeds in Fetch at this time.

    While usually one application (such as Fetch) shouldn't be able to completely take over and prevent you from being able to use other Internet services, some Internet connections and hardware don't do a good job of balancing bandwidth demands between different programs and protocols. Unfortunately, it sounds like you have one of those setups (I realize this is pretty much out of your control).

    Speed limiting is something we're considering for the future, and we appreciate your feedback. We apologize that we don't have a better answer for you at this time.

    I would also love to see fetch offer limits for upload and download speeds.
