This week I was filling in for a co-worker who's on vacation. I had to send a reasonably large file (1.3 gig) by FTP. Our procedure has been to move the file down to a PC hard drive, zip it, and send the zip file from the pc because direct FTP from the 400 was very slow. Because I didn't have enough room on my hard drive, I tried FTPing the file to an IFS directory, in hopes of sending it from there. If I hadn't killed the job, it would have taken nearly three hours to FTP the file to to the IFS. I deleted a bunch of files from my PC hard drive and was able to FTP the file to my PC in 30 minutes. I hope this isn't normal. If not, what sorts of things should we look for in the TCP/IP configuration on the 400?
