Ftp Speed Advice

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm looking for some advice around improving my FTP speeds. I'm using WinSCP and both my Xbox and PC are connected to my router via Ethernet cables. I'm using XBMC4Gamers as my main dash but am loading into UnleashedX for FTP since I've read it should be faster. From what I've seen speeds approaching 10MB/s (even slightly above) should be common...

Still, when transferring to the console I'm currently lucky to get speeds of over 1MB/s - they're usually much lower and often only around 250KB/s. For some reason transferring from the Xbox to my PC gives much faster speeds at around 5MB/s. I've tried playing around with the max connections in UnleashedX, I had it set to 10 and have since set it to 2 and haven't seen any real improvement.

Get yourself a copy of FATXplorer and connect the hard drive direct to the computer.

Depending on the computer 300 gig in 60 minutes.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

Good advice, I probably should transfer it internally in my PC.

But I would also really like to figure out what's causing the slow FTP speeds. Please login or register to see this link.  Comparing Halo 2's load times it looks like my drive is performing as expected internally. Going to try another router with security off.

I have 2 tried different routers one was the ISP supplied unit and the other is Asus with custom firmware  both are about the same  if anything the Asus maybe a bit faster if it was not working harder as there is 25 wifi devices and 5 wired devices as I type this . I have also tried a direct cat5 from the computer and the Xbox and found no real improvement.

Unleash is supposed to be the faster dash for FTP but once again Evox was not that far behind  and with XBMC it was super slow.

Using a 8 year old I5 2gig ram desktop  and FATXplorer was around 20 times quicker the HDD's where 7200 rpm 2tb Sata drives. and some people are reporting about 500 gig in 60 minutes on a current computer so around 4 -5 hours for a 2tb.

You can use an FTP client that supports BOOST mode, Qwix, for instance. On the console you must be running an FTP server which also supports it, so either Avalaunch or UnleashX. BOOST mode usually maxes out the ethernet connection speed.

Thanks for the replies.

I've hooked up my PC and Xbox to an ASUS RT-N56U rather than the cheap (but much newer) Technicolor EPC3940L from my cable provider. I'm now seeing consistent speeds of 10MB/s+ with occasionally dips to 5MB/s. Surprised at how terrible the cheap router had been performing.

Another option is a crossover cable, pc to Xbox, gets a transfer speed of 10MB/s +.

      I'm trying to forward and FTP session to my xbox using a raspberrry pi running psx-pi-smbshare. I've followed all the instructions given on the github readme. Has anyone had any success with this?

      i was ftp'ing games onto my new hdd when filezila suddenly error'd. when i went to check my xbox the dashboard said i have 0mb left(i had over 2,000gb on this partition) on e drive and games management said i only have 3 games installed. i deleted the games and the dashboard was saying i only have 3,000+mb's free. long story short, i kept messing around with trying to reformat the hdd and put about 1024gb on 2 partitions but the dash board would only show that i had a little over 3,000mb on each partition even the partition wizard was saying i had 1024gb on each partition. what the heck is wrong with this thing? i'm currently erasing the hdd in my pc and writing all 0's to it. then i intend to try it again but i have no idea if this gonna fix it. btw, i have an aladdin chip(5004 f and g bios), 80 wire ide cable, and 3tb barrcuda seagate drive.
