    Currently on one of the dedicated servers with a 1Gbit full-duplex uplink the maximum download seems to be around 25Mbit/s. I have tried this with FTP and HTTP and somehow this seems to be a software setting, but I cannot find out where.


    Is there anything within cPanel/WHM that allows the setting of maximum connection bandwidth for each connection?

    This isn't something controlled by cPanel. One thing I can tell you is that while your server may have a 1Gb port, that doesn't mean that you're automatically entitled to use 1Gb/s, especially if you're co-locating or you are running a server owned by a higher-level hosting provider. Most hosting providers are not going to let their customers use that much bandwidth on their network unless that is specifically what you're paying for - I'm surprised you're even able to do 25 Mb/s.

    If you ARE the hosting provider, the first thing I would check is your switch to see if there is any port limiting enabled, and then the network card. Is it really capping out at 25Mb/s and not going a smidgen higher at all? When it gets this high, does your server lock up? There could be several causes of the bandwidth speeds being capped, but I can assure you that cPanel is not one of them.

    I did not know if it was a software setting (like the limit settings of pure-ftpd.conf) or something else. Thank you Venessa for your clear answer. It is a dedicated sever and I am going to look into that.
