Revision history [back]

The problem you are having is that your ftp transfer is using your upload bandwidth (as you can see).

What you want to do to help with the problem is called traffic shaping.

You can use a number of tools to help.

1) lftp

edit /etc/lftp.conf and add a line

set net:limit-rate <bytes per sec>

2) trickle - you will need to install trickle first

trickle -d <kbytes/sec> ftp

3) tc is a bit more complex. See See http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-traffic-shaping-using-tc-to-control-http-traffic/

You will have to try adjusting the limits for your network.
