I'm having a very strange Problem with FTP transfers. The ftp server is a Linux 2.6 32-bit box with vsftp installed. On this box, transmission-daemon (bittorrent) is also installed and the download path is /mnt/usbdrive/transmission-daemon/
Whenever I ftp from my other computers to the ftp server and start a transfer from the above directory, the speeds are 2-6mbit/s with several stalls in the transfer progress.
All other directories, either from the internal disk, or from another directory on the USB drive are fine. 10Mbit/s stable.
Things I have tried, without success:
- HTTP instead of FTP
- Changing permissions on /mnt/usbdrive/transmission-daemon/
- shortening transmission-daemon to trd
- fsck on the usb-drive
- stopping transmission-daemon
Anyone who knows whats going on here?
