Slow file transfers

Several factors outside of the control of the SmartFTP program determine the file transfer rate: the Internet connection type, the Internet traffic, the server traffic, the network traffic on the ISP that is hosting the server etc. Nevertheless, you can try the following things in order to improve slow transfers.

Note: Please keep in mind that the most determining factor is the connection speed. Tuning the Buffer sizes and turning on the Mode Z will have a minimal effect on transfer speed.
