    speed limit of foldershare

    I wonder what causes the speed limit (approx 70 kb/s) ?
    I think it will be the Msoft-servers? (and not my network, my DSL, or the
    internet in any way)

    I doubt that thought because the connections that are established between
    your computers are p2p and do not pass through MS servers.

    So what is the speed limit?
    I am also seeing 70kB/s. I am on Verizon FIOS with 1800 k upload and the
    remote is on Optonline with over 10,000 download capability.

    How can I improve the speed. I sure would like to see 500kB/s.

    I can get up to 1.5 MB/s (FolderShare reports it as mB/s!!) between LAN
    hosts. Maybe try disabling QoS on your network TCP/IP properties at both
    ends and also complain to your ISP about any p2p traffic shaping.

    It's been my experience over the years that Foldershare will use up as much
    bandwidth as you can throw at it (with the exception of some glitches that
    happen internally where two PCs on the same network transfer at 100 KB/s
    rather than the 3+ MB/s you should see). If you have a 1 megabit upload
    speed, that's 1000 kbps, which is 125 KB/s at maximum....probably more like
    100 KB/s real-world. If you have 1.8 megabit upload speed, you should be
    seeing around 200 KB/s real-world speeds. Is there anything else chewing up
    your upstreadm bandwidth, such as an FTP server, or online back up program?
