    Hi

    I have dedicated server and run CSF and CXS
    The issue is that FTP is slow - it sends a bunch of files and pauses
    then loads 20 -40 more then pauses

    My upload speed is high - I have FIOS

    I need to figure out whats limiting the FTP upload speeds

    I do see load increase a little during uploads but only to 2 or so

    Any ideas or places to look will be welcome

    Did you try enabling Passive mode on the server as well as in the FTP client ? This should help as well.

    Sounds like the number of connections is being reached. Thats different from speed of upload of course.

    You might check your settings here:
    Home » Service Configuration » FTP Server Configuration

    i checked the number of connections and increased it from 50 to 500 - not much difference

    It allows me to upload 800 files or so then it pauses about every 50 files for about 15 -18 seconds

    filezilla shows accepted data connection 3 to 10 times in a row while its paused

    started logging to file - log shows now obvious errors

    the server isnt incorrectly configured as demonstrated by allowing 500 connections in previous posts

    Connection Limit Protection is not configured on the server

    and the IP Im connecting from is ignored by CSF using DYNDNS settings
