I have two computer, one of them is running wonXP and the other one is running win2000 but both of them encountered the kind of problem. The problem is if I upload a large file to someone else the speed is around 200KB to 800KB. But if someone download a file from my computer (ftp server) the speed is only around 20KB to 30KB.

I have tried re-install the ftp server again but the problem still can't be fixed. Is there any limitation in each session (connection) in win2000 or winxp, if yes, pls advise how to release it.

Ftp server is using Bulletproof 2.15

Are you going through a router, if so what kind.

I'm thinking you would need to change the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
LVL 79

What kind of connection do you have? If you have cable or DSL broadband, you typically have an asymetric bandwidth, meaning fast downloads, slow uploads - from the outside, that means fast pushes TO your server, slow downloads FROM your server.

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

one of them is a 10M deticated line which is connected to my winXP computer and the dl/ul speed is 10Mb / 800KB repectively.

The other one is a 8Mb cable modem line which is connected to win2000 and the dl/ul is 8Mb / 600KB.

To my understanding, If the problem is related MTU, so it would affect all kinds of connection, including the download and uploading. But the problem is only happened if someone try to download a file from  my ftp server.
