When I ftp to server on the same network I am able to connect,  but once connected it is very slow
to move around or use simple commands like cd or ls.  I am using SOlaris 8.

Is there anything I can do to speed this up?

It maybe that the duplex or speed setting between the two machines don't match.  (Or if there is a switch betwwen them, it is different on that).
To find duplex and speed:
ndd -get /dev/hme link_mode
ndd -get /dev/hme link_speed

They can be set with ndd -set

There is a good article at http://www.computing.net/solaris/wwwboard/forum/2113.html

What are you getting from the FTP server? Because of its nature it is inefficent at moving lots of little files.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is to:
