If it is faster when you are alone, its probably a hardware issue on my end as we are still no where near max bandwidth.
I'd be interested..

I connected ftp via Terminal, logging in credentials "ftp" and "any" (without quotes). and preceded to download.... same speed... 157k, so i don't think its a restriction of Anonymous vs issue.

This done, just now

Unable to login with credentials via browser as i think it just falls back to default even with correct ftp:any syntax. Either way,, running Terminal session prompted username/password in this case.

I've done testing myself here and not found any problems so, either way, there is not much more I can do.

Since my last fix, this is basically what I am looking at all the time now, speed wise.

Quote:
| ftp | 6714 | 02:02:54 | Dn: AMINET51.part02.r at 480.1K/sec |
| ftp | 8269 | 04:56:54 | Dn: AMINET51.part03.r at 491.9K/sec |
| ftp | 21842 | 25:37 | Dn: CDPD IV (1994)(Al at 500.0K/sec |
| ftp | 21843 | 25:37 | Dn: Card Games (PD So at 500.0K/sec |
| ftp | 28502 | 06:01 | Dn: /Commodore_Amiga/ at 500.0K/sec |
| ftp | 29823 | 05:52 | Dn: /Commodore_Amiga/ at 493.7K/sec |
| ftp | 16956 | 03:02 | Idle: 00:50 |
| ftp | 22461 | 02:14 | "LIST" |
| ftp | 31589 | 05:38 | Dn: /Commodore_Amiga/ at 500.2K/sec |
Basically, every anonymous FTP user gets their 500K/sec (this was not the case before my last fix). I tried from 4 different ISPs here in Sweden and I get 2-300 megabit (and up) download speeds without any problems. There are no slow downs depending on the number of people online anymore and at most there was ~20 anonymous users online, all getting their 500K/sec worth, at the same time.

So not much I can do for you that have problems I'm afraid. I'd suggest stop using "terminals" (whatever that means) and web browsers to download from FTP. Get a real FTP client like Filezilla or FlashFXP (my favorite) and verify speeds to ftp.sunet.se, logging in with "anonymous" and any password.

If you want to test speeds on the same link using a webbrowser, try this link:
http://grandis.nu/downloads/Games_WHDLoad_AGA.3.0.zip
See if that makes a difference. If there is a difference between that file and the FTP, its either your client or my FTP server. If its just as slow from that link, its not on my end as its hosted on different servers using the same internet link.

If you have to use a browser and use your own login, the format is ftp://username:password@grandis.nu but not all browsers allow that anymore. Works in Firefox and Edge. Internet Explorer stopped supporting that format a while back.

I do have one more thing that I am currently doing and will present in a few days hopefully.

I'm very happy with the FTP performance, always been, so I wouldn't worry too much Turran.

Thanks for having this great service for us all!

Started using FileZilla - performance is way better than in Chrome...

Is everyone Ok with me leeching the Gamebase files? I'd like to get a full set for the Amilator project.

So I think we have a final solution to everything related to anonymous users on site.

I have bought unlimited storage at Google, so I present this:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...XRvNkVOelNNRk0

Took me several days to send everything over because the software totally sucks. I'll keep it synced every day or so.

So my suggestion would then be to either disable anonymous logins entirely or limit them to something like 20k/sec (500k/sec today).

Any objections or suggestions?

Edit: There are a lot of "desktop.ini" files on the google drive. I've been unable to disable that, despite trying all sorts of registry settings, so for now, deal with it =)

Wouldn't this create issues related to "copyright" stuff?
I just don't know how relating to Google feels. Well, I know, it feels icky and problem-prone.

Once you start getting a lot of hits there, it might raise flags.
Just don't want you to get in trouble.

Guess we'll find out. You can't find the link anywhere except for me pasting it here.

Out of interest, how much space are you using and how much bandwidth per month?

Its about 1.2TB of data. Bandwidth I can't really say right now since I disabled logging for troubleshooting reasons. I'll enable it again.

Edit: Some old logs show about 500 GB a day. Not sure how accurate that is yet as the logs are reset now.

That's not gonna take long to spread, especially if you make it be the destination for anonymous users.

You're right. We'll see if they say anything.

Either use
https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...XRvNkVOelNNRk0
or register an upload account and use that instead of the anonymous FTP account.

Its still in a testing phase. We'll see how it goes.

OK, understand.
As I'm not a fan of Google drive and as I am not able to DL anything from the above link (I always get an error message "Error while compressing"), I would like to create an upload account.
But.. I know it is for sure a dumb question... But HOW can I create such an upload account?

I assume you've got Drive Unlimited at a special rate, but just as another option - I have a server with Hetzner and you can get the current version of my server with 2x2TB drives, 30TB bandwidth, 64GB RAM and an i7-6700 (or Xeon equivilent) for €39 a month. An extra €10 gets you 2x4TB drives instead.

The benefit with this being that you can host other stuff on it as well as files (e.g. websites, email, etc).

May be worth considering depending on how much you're paying at the moment for Drive.

Nice, but way to much for this project =) I pay $8/month for google drive.

I must say though, I'm not a big fan of google drive either. Their software sucks. This is, however, just a test period. If people hate it, we'll just go back to how it was.

I hate it. It has Google in it. I never had an issue with DL speed, 500k/sec is okay. 20 k is almost like dropping the connection.
