Hi

I need to transfer a file to a linux server, but it's incredibly slow with WinSCP.

Is there something else I can use to upload to the server with multiple connections/threads?

Thanks

Are you sure you have the fast upstream capacity required for faster uploads to work? Most ISP schemes throttle the upstream to a small percentage of the downstream.

If you have the capacity, try setting up a FTP server on your present system, then use Wget on the remote server to download the file.

Addendum:
I guess it would work just as well if you set up a normal webserver instead of a FTP one.

I'm getting 25% of my upstream capacity. I'm in a third world country and using multiple threads/connections usually solves the issue.

I can't install a webserver or ftp server on the local machine (windows).

I can install an ftp server on the remote machine (linux), but does uploading support multiple connections? or is it only downloading that can?

I think that most popular Windows FTP clients support multi-threaded uploads. Filezilla does AFAIK, and I'm sure FlashFXP does as well.

Why can't you install a web- or FTP server on your Windows machine? XAMPP is pretty much a one-click installation (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html) and FileZilla comes as a free FTP server. Is it that you are not allowed to?

ISP is closed for the holidays, and I need ports opened.
