    We have a back up that has to be done via FTP for 1.5tb, I'm trying to find the fastest way to transfer the files. We seem to only be getting 500k-1m a second for our test files.

    Both servers have a 100mbit connection.

    Is there anyway to speed up server to server FTP?

    Hello @WebHostPro,

    Are both servers hosted in the same data center? If so, you may want to look into setting up a local connection between the two servers instead of connecting via the public IP addresses.

    You may also want to use the traceroute utility to see if you notice any slowness/delay on any of the hops during the connection attempt from the cPanel server reaches the FTP server.

    Also, is it a requirement that FTP is used as the transfer protocol?

    Thank you.
