Your best friend for file transfer.

Super slow Fetch connection (4 posts)

    I've used Fetch for years, but lately I've noticed that my file transfers are really bogging down. My machine specifics:

    2.16 Intel Core 2 Duo iMac
    OS 10.5.6
    4GB 533 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    OSX Firewall settings:
    Set Access for specific services, Allow incoming connections to Fetch

    Fetch settings that seem applicable to me (if an option isn't listed, it's off):

    General: PASV: on

    Upload: format: binary

    Proxy: none

    Misc: allow duplicate

    Obscure: send dummy, use type 1, edit text files with TextWrangler (use text mode)

    Typical operations for me are uploading and downloading folders from my hosted www folder, and editing files directly in TextWrangler/BBEdit. Today I'm editing my .htaccess file (~900 bytes). Here's a sample transcript snippet:

    STOR .htaccess
    150 Ok to send data.
    226 File receive OK.
    Transfer of .htaccess (903 bytes, 301 bytes/sec, 0:03 elapsed) completed at 4/7/09 11:09:25 AM

    Between the STOR and the "150 Ok" lines, I can easily wait 30-60s. Apparently the elapsed time only indicates actual transfer time.

    While I'm waiting for Fetch to connect, I can open Terminal, type my connect to FTP server info, manually copy and paste my username and password, type my cd and lcd info, type my put with file name, and the file transfer is done before Fetch.

    Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
