Very slow upload to webspace

I uploaded a website to my webspace one evening last week. There was about 470Kb to upload, which took about three and a half hours, or somewhere around 300 bits per second! I have a 512K connection, and used the Linux file manager/web browser Konqueror, which has ftp capabilities. Was I just unlucky and the server was busy, or what?

Very slow upload to webspace

I have experienced slow upload speeds with konqueror before, I just think its to do with its ftp engine playing up. When ever I upload to ftp using my linux box I use 'gftp'. I dont know which linux distro you are using so I cant help with installing gftp, but it should be relatively easy Smiley

Suse 9.1. I tried gftp but couldn't get it to connect, and the documentation was unintelligible. Still, there are plenty of others out there. Maybe I'll just try a different one.

PlusNets ftp speed is really good, runs at full speed, my friends own server runs fast, but only about a third of the speed.
