Slow speeds on WAN

Recommended Posts

I have read through the recent posts on slow speeds and WAN and couldn't find a solution to this one. 


I have a Linux server in US that is syncing to a desktop in South Africa. My old method of transfer is SFTP where I was getting speeds of 440kBs. I am on a 4MB connection this end so that was as good as it gets. 


Using btsync I see occasional peaks of 100kBs, but mostly it is between 20-60kBs. 


I have the 2 arrows in the web interface. Listening port open on both machines.  I can max connection on torrent traffic on the desktop with a normal torrent client. The files sizes are generally around 20-30MB


I just tried with unison the same files and have max speed.




Any suggestions?

I have the same problem.

BTSync caps at 115kB's, which seems quite slow.

It's around 10% of the network upload capacity where I currently am.

The download transfer speed on the target machine location is much higher that this.

Yes I see two arrows in BTSync Interface.

Using uTorrent sometimes I get download speeds approaching 2MB, so I don't think it is the ISP.

The funny thing is that it never goes over 115 kB/s over WAN, but most of the time it's much slower than that.
