FTP performance

    At home, I just configured my new NSLU2 unit with a 250 GB NTFS HD on port 1. I'm running the R63 firmware.

    No real problems so far, I'm able to FTP my disk from my office with FTP Voyager.
    However, I think the transfer speed could be way faster.

    From work to my home: about 5 kB/s
    From my home to work: about 12 kB/s (yes, that's kilo-Bytes, not bits)

    My private line is a ADSL 2000 dn/ 300 up, and the line at my work is way faster.

    Where could the limitation be hidden? I'm using the admin account.
    The file-system? Should I try ext3?

    The harddrive is a Maxtor OneTouch

    Thanks for looking into this issue

    Oh, and yes, it's kind of slow to browse the harddrive from within my home network as well

    Seems to be working fine now, after a re-start at work. (My computer, that is, not me.. )
    explorer.exe was kind of busy for a moment there..

    Upload (work->home) is now up in 213 kB/s and increasing :rockon:

    One limiting factor would be the speed of the USB port for the HD
