Hi,

When trying out the apache ftp server, observed that for file transfers are
slow, when the user logged in is anyone other than the default "admin". This
difference is huge with respect to the overall time taken ( almost 4 times
slower)..Is there a specific cause for this to happen?

Attaching below the client transcripts -- Notice the difference in the
transfer rates for "guest" and "admin"... This was run on the same system ,
tried just a few minutes apart.

Do let me know in case any other information is required...
