ISPconfig 2 FTP transfer slow on LAN

    Hi, I installed ISPconfig 2 back again and uploading sites on a LAN connection using Filezilla.
    I had ISPconfig 3 since today, and the FTP transfer was extremely fast, I was uploading 8000 files in less than a minute.
    in ISPconfig 2 it takes more than 15 minutes to do this


    Edit: I have similar problem with Web-FTP too. It takes long to enter and show the contents.

    what do I need to check please ?

    thanks a lot

    Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

    Hi there guys,

    thanks to both of you for your reply and help me into this really,

    yes in Filezilla I have tried both Default // Active // Passive modes, even restarting the client on every change. I even tried this from a linux os running on same computer connecting to the same server.

    I read it, thanks for pointing me there, I also found lots of other ones before I posted my problem. Well Actually, my problem is not the speed I get in order to connect to the server actually, which is an issue you can say compared to how it was before, but the speed I get in transfering files.

    Example:
    - If I try to transfer a large file, as a tested a 1GB WAV file, it transfers it with the limits of my lan connection. about 11,7MB/s
    - But If I try to upload say, a Joomla unpacked archive, which is about 6000 files or so, I see the files uploading slow.

    So it is not the actual speed of 1 file itself, but how long it takes for 1 file to the next. As I said, in ISPconfig 3, it was uploading 8000 files in like WOW les than a minute like a lightning. Now it takes 2 cigarettes (or more).

    This is my ping results from a Windows OS, (default firewall disabled completely from the windows services even, no firewall on OS/Computer itself):

    I also haven't added any jobs to this ubuntu machine, I did install some more software to it, but the test I am talking about, and slow file transfer is since I first installed it and it was 100% clean of other installations. I have rebooted the machine lots of times too. It should also not be a ram issue, I don't have slow logins either (I remind you on same laptop computer I was running ISPconfig 3 the previous day). I also don't have more IPs added.

    Now I first noticed the problem when the server was fresh installed and the ISPconfig Firewall was not ON. So turning it ON/OFF has same results.

    If I turn the "UseIPv6 on" to "off" as by someone's advice, then the FTP server goes completely down.

    Most important for me is, that even if I connect from the same computer that the server is installed on, I get absolutely same speed results. So it must be some special setting that I need to alter.

    I just restarted into linux (the computer I just posted the above reply),
    installed gFTP to try the same thing. Result, even slower, I actually don't like gFTP at all.

    Also testing right now with Filezilla on linux, same thing.

    By the way, same kinda slow speed I have even when deleting files from server. ( 6000 files = 2 cigarettes long :D )
