Ftp upload rate issue.

  • Posted November 8, 2013

Hi, I got trouble with ftp upload speed. I gof vsftpd running on ubuntu. Everything’s fine but the upload rate. It’s exactly 130 kbps. Download’s ok about 1 Mbps. So, I stuck. Please point them settings out to me so I fix it.

Are you using Total Commander as the FTP client?

Same exact problem here, changed one line and… solved :)

Try running a speed test, what upload speed do you get?

Now I’m using sftp but still have the same trouble. Upload rate won’t get higher than 130kbps. Definitely there’s an issue with droplet or smth. Tried different OS: debian,ubuntu,32 and 64. Problem always stays. Maybe a little tip where to look? Please.

Thank you, I’m going to that.

FTP is not very secure and there’s rarely any point in using it – if ever – given the ease/simplicity of using SFTP. <i>See</i> <a href=“”>How To Use Filezilla to Transfer and Manage Files Securely on your VPS</a> and/or <a href=“”>How To Use SFTP to Securely Transfer Files with a Remote Server</a>. <br> <br>If you insist on using vsFTPd, do yourself a favor and at least use it via SSL/TLS (FTPS): <a href=“”>How To Configure vsftpd to Use SSL/TLS on an Ubuntu VPS</a>.
