Ok..I have a server that is running Debian linux, opensshd, vsftpd. This server has a 1Gb upload pipe, and my clients pipe is 2.5mb downstream.
The issue is that I can download something from that server to my client, through any of rsync, scp, or filezilla ftp..or anything. My download speed only sees about 1/3rd of what it should. However, if I use DownThemAll or something else which uses multiple simultaneous connections, then I get all the speed I want.
My provider assures me (and he's technically knowledgeable/savvy), that it isn't anything on their end..that they don't have any caps on that.
What's going on here? It's kind of unnerving because I can't just rsync it over which would be preferable.
