I am dragging 1.3 GB file from my desktop to our datacenter and only getting 250 KB on what is supposed to be a 30 MB pipe

We have a data center where are our file servers are stored. I am on my desktop at the office early in the morning and trying to drag a file there. We are supposed to have a 30 MB pipe but I am only gettnig 250 KB. What tools can I use to trouble shoot this? Isn't this pretty poor performance considering the pipe?

I would start with Wireshark and make sure everything is good there - no dropped packets, etc.

Here's some good reading for you.

Also, I think you meant you have a 30Mb link. Network is usually measured in bits, while data is measured in bytes.

So you are actually, running 1.953Mbps on that 30Mbps line. 250KB * 8 = 1.953Mbps.

You can modify the window size to allow for better throughput, but using another software would probably make life a lot easier.
