I have a Verizon FIOS 50/20 internet setup. My servers are in a Tier III+ data center (pryme.net) in Ashburn, no limits on my rack, GiGe everything, etc. I can download a file from a linux box behind my firewall at 6 MB/sec, yet on Windows 2003 (IIS 6) I only get 2.7 MB/sec.
Why is it that linux can provide a faster file download than Windows?
Is there anything that can be done in IIS to resolve this issue?
