Not sure I agree with that. I download ALL my images using batch ftp on and to an i 7.1 partition. I do have the receive buffer at 65536 but have had it that way for years.

This partition routes over a virtual network through a hosted IBM i partition functioning as a bridge then to our firewall.

Download speeds range from 3600KB (yes B) /sec to 4800 KB /sec (3.6 to 4.8 MB) and that's with multiple downloads running concurrently I have the limit currently at 4 and that many were running when these numbers were attained.

IBM usually does limit one FTP channel to about 200kB/sec,
so your CHGTCPA will not help (but buffer sizes of 131072 is recommended).

Currently loading with Download director at about 18MB/sec,
which uses 9 streams.

Might it possibly be a CHGTCPA thing or something?
