linux machine - upload extremely slow
Posted on 2004-08-25
i've got root access to a machine (i dunno the linux version number, its either redhat 8 or 9) ... i can only log on remotely using ssh
i'm on a 10/100 mbit LAN
after logging in thru ssh, when i try downloading a file thru ftp , it comes pretty fast .. (i.e., the normal speed that it should come at .. say 2 MB/s)
however, when i try uploading to the ftp, the speed is pathetic (around 50 KB/s) ..
there's nothing wrong with the FTP .. i tried 3 different machines running FTP servers, and in all cases, the same thing was happening ..
its as if there is a restriction on the upload bandwith ..
can someone help me ?? i have root access, but have very little knowledge on working with linux .. and have no idea what to do ...
