Hello All,
I have a question about downloading files over the internet.
If you are using an FTP server and client to download large files (>30 MB) is the download any faster using FTP?  I'm looking for ways to transfer backup files from a file server to an off-site FTP server.  Some of these files take 2-3 hours.  Any suggestions on how to reduce this time.  The files are already compressed by the backup software (Genie Backup Manager Pro 5).  Thanks for your assistance.

Well, the obvious way would be to increase the size of  your pipeline.  But this can get expensive.  Are you running your backups late at night when the internet is slow and bandwidth is high?

You could add another pipeline to the equation and 1) use a dual wan router to push packets out or 2) install a second NIC in your server and use a registry edit to load balance the NICs.  (This is only available for 2003 Server)  the hack is outlined here:

www.doverproductions.com  (Look under W2003 Server for Network Load Balancing)

Since you are already using compression, I really don't know of any other way to get your data transfered any quicker here.
