Direct Wan Transfers Slow (<50Kb/s) [Single Large File, Speed Tested]


Recommended Posts

My friend and I installed BTSync and wanted to test the sync speed. I made a new folder and put a single 350MB file inside and sent my friend a read-only, one time secret. 


When connected, we got the "two-arrows" icon, so we were direct connected. The transfer would peak at about 40kB/s and never sustained itself at that level. Here's what my network utilization looked like during the sync:



Here's my speed test and here's his speed test. We both regularly achieve stable 1+MB/s connections with regular BT. We both stopped any other programs that would drag on our network connections. We're both running Windows 7.


Does anyone have ideas on what might be wrong?
