Remote access slow download speed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I setup a user account for my brother to access a shared folder on my server remotely. When he tries to download a 600 mb video file from the share his download speed is ~60kbs (very slow). Since his Internet connection speed is 2mbs (which I had him test) I am thinking this must be on my end at the server.

    My up/down connection speed is 1.5/6.0 mbs so it not my network. Does anyone know what may be the issue on the server side in terms of accessing shared folders remotely. Is there settings or config that I should check within Vail that can cause this problem. When I transfer large files within my network between the server and my other machines I am getting transfer speeds of up to 122 mbs which is very fast so I am sure it's not disk read write issue.
