FTP speeds throttled by TM

It appears that TM has deprioritized FTP traffic and this is affecting our seedbox users.

We are now testing enabling HTTP for all our seedbox users. Before we do this, we require your help in testing the following test download files and telling us what speeds you get:

  1. http://sb1.bolehvpn.net/test1GB.bin
  2. http://sb2.bolehvpn.net/test1GB.bin
  3. http://colossus.bolehvpn.net/test1GB.bin

    On Jaring Wired BB,

    1. and 2. goes up to my max bandwidth which is 100kB/s around after 5 – 8 seconds
    3. sometimes up to 100kB/s sometimes down back to 50kB/s.. It’s like stock exchange up down up down..

    I’m not having any problems with FTP speeds frankly, though during peak times, ftp speeds seem to drop from 170-ish KB/s down to 85-95 KB/s.

    Not so sure http would benefit me all that much but if both were available, that could be useful if one or the other gets throttled to hell.

    Using streamy*ss

    1. and 2. around 130 kb/s to 160 kb/s,

    using 4mb Streamyx. Tested with IDM 5.29 and 8 connectons per file. IP: 218.111.xx.xx

    1) 480KB/s – 500Kb/s
    2) 400KB/s – 450Kb/s
    3) 500Kb/s – 560Kb/s


  16. Franky says:

    just a small idea…..

    i use the Filezilla and IDM. Mostly Filezilla’s download speed is not stable and very slow

    Idm is working superb if change the connections to 8 or more ( more connections more faster u get it )

    Only based on my Experiences… 😀


  17. Acputra says:

    can use IDM to download file from seedbox ka?

  18. Franky says:

    @ Acputra….Sure you can, coz you will download the file from Seedbox via Http or Ftp only. Both works on IDM


  19. Acputra says:

    thanx, at least my download speed just like bfore.
