Re: copy a file to network

tell me more about your config

Is it 10/100 network or it is WAN ?
What kind of server you use ?
What kind of services you use FTP ?

Re: copy a file to network

If you are connected at 100Mbps the autonegotiation could be killing your transfer. In such case configure your switch and server at fixed 100 Mbps.

WHich is your server and operating system?

Re: copy a file to network

It is not unusual, when copying a very large file, for Windows to underestimate the copy time at first, and then to make up a random, unrealistic number.

Re: copy a file to network

As said, Windows estimation of time is often unrealistic. Anyway, you will have better transfert rates by ftp than using netbios transferts (or any other).
