Actually, this is a lot of small files (48KB mean size). Speed is roughly 2 Mbps which is low for a 100 Mbps. Do you establish a new connection for each file ? What about directory changes ? Is it a single FTP connection for all files sequentially ? Is it a single destination server ? What about authentication ? If you do a new connection for each file, autenthication alone can be time consuming. What if you transfert the same data volume (830MB) in a single file ? Same question if you break into 4 large file and use 4 instances of your program ? -- [EMAIL PROTECTED] The author of the freeware multi-tier middleware MidWare The author of the freeware Internet Component Suite (ICS) http://www.overbyte.be -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
