I am doing a data conversion from VMS to Windows. I know a little about VMS the VMS command line but not much. I have an IT background. I am having this problem on several different VMS servers where I am trying to move GBs of data off it during close of business so I can convert it after hours and have them up on Windows Monday morning.
FTP transfers are exceptionally slow at several of the sites ( like 1 MB every 10 min) I don't think this is due to anything external to the VMS like switches or cabling as we have swapped this all out.
I have the same probem using ftp client or ftp in DOS. I have an FTP server on the VMS and on Windows and while it seems to be a little faster to push the data to the windows server its not that much faster.
How do I speed up FTP speeds as this is a huge problem for us and holding up several large projects?
