FTP Software to suit my requirements?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I've got a 50Mb/s downstream connection that I want to be able to max out from my FTP server. The server itself has a 100Mb/s upstream, so it's more than capable of uploading the files to me at my max speed.
But, I can't seem to find a client that does what I need.

Filezilla - works great, but doesn't support multipart downloading so my speeds are limited to around 800KB/s~ per file.
CoreFTP - interface hangs so I don't know what speed the file is downloading at.
CuteFTP - Tells me I'm downloading a 330MB folder at 5MB/s but it'll take 10 minutes to complete.
WinSCP - Doesn't do multipart, only seems to want to do one file at a time. My download speed gets stuck at a max of 1.4MB/s.

So I need a client that supports SFTP, multipart downloading that won't hang and can max out a 50Mb/s downstream connection.

Suggestions?

(Note: MB/s = Megabytes per second, Mb/s = Megabits per second. Just wanted to clear that up to avoid any confusion)

On the FTP side, I have no idea. The server isn't in my control, so I can't check either.
With WinSCP, the options indicate that that it can do concurrent downloads, but when I tried downloading a folder it was going through each file one by one, and very slowly at that.

in filezilla you can download multiple files at a time. Also why not try a download accelerator. DAP works pretty good, I am in a similar situtation. I have 100mb/s connection and found it hard to get my moneys worth. what i do now is just download all the files at the same time. why not connect to the ftp server with chrome or something (i know not the best method).

Are the files very large or are the small? I use hotfile as a pseudo storage cloud. when i need to retrive a large amount of files i just download them all at once. I download at my full potential (~8.6mbps - ~11mbps). funny thing is, from EA i download at 6.7mbps, from steam 5.5mbps, from hotfile 2.8mbps. the only difference is, on hotfile i get 2.8mbps per file and the others thats the max no matter how many. Also just because the upload is 100mbps doesn't necessarily mean it can max you out. In ideal condition yea, but you have to factor in other things.

Filezilla does multiple files concurrently, yes, but doesn't segment individual files to download them quicker. Download accelerators like DAP do just that - they segment the files. I don't use it because I'm looking for an FTP client that has it as a native ability.
It's a mixture of filesizes. Some are only a few megabytes, others a several gigabytes.

What you're seeing is the maximum speed you can get per download slot you get. From Steam, you can't control the number of concurrent connections you have so you're stuck with whatever Steam gives you. In this case, you max out the connections at 5.5MB/s. The same applies for EA.
Hotfile is giving you 2.8MB/s per connection/slot, so when you run multiple downloads, you stack them until you max out your connection. But, if you want to improve your single file connection speed, download and install JDownloader. That will allow you to manually set the number of connections - I personally use 14 connections (after using the override which limits it to 5 maximum) which used to max out my 20Mb/s connection, though I haven't properly tested with the 50Mb/s line.
