Slow SSH and FTP UPLOADS!



  • I am using pfsense with
    WAN link is connected directly to Pfsense WAN interface
    Lan cable goes to DLINK switch and from DLINK switch to Cisco E1000 Wireless router
    users are connected with E1000 Wireless Router!
    Problem i am facing is everyday Users complains about Slow SSH and Slow FTP Uploading to Remote Servers which are in different Countries and at the same time when uploading to Google Servers and Downloading from Ubuntu Servers is giving me maximum Speed! i am facing this issue from a year and i am not able to resolve it, i can't understand what kind of problem is this slow SSH and FTP UPLOADS even when there is no load on the link!!!!
    On windows system ssh disconnects and on Linux ssh connections hangs! please help me to resolve this issue! I tried LAN Cables too!



  • What are your pings? Some SSH clients and servers have limited buffering which limits how much unacked data can be in flight.



  • My pings are nearly 300 ms because it is 14 hops (routers) away! Ping responses remains same whenever SSH is working fine! users are working on ubuntu servers remotely!


  • Banned

    a Ubuntu server, likely.



  • Depending on his bandwidth, if he has traffic shaping enabled, the 50 packet queue depth is too small and hurts bandwidth. Making a lot of guesses here with not many facts to work with.
