DOS Ftp throughput vs Windows Ftp client throughput
Posted on 2005-04-07
Why is there a difference between the throughput speed when downloading a file using an ftp session in DOS versus a windows client like ftp commander. I am using a XP machine as client and a linux ftp server totally isolated from the LAN to perform this test. On average I get 11M/s when using DOS for a file size of 70M, with any windows based ftp client like FTP Commander I get 3.2M/s for downloading the same file.
