You are probably referring to your max download speed.  What is your upload speed?  Your upload speed is the important one here as that is the speed that would affect your users.  When they download from you, you are actually uploading to them.

Contact your ISP.  It's probably around 128 kb/s if your users are noticing a speed of 15 kB/s as you say in your first post above.  (128 / 8 = 16).

Have you configured your firewall and port forwards correctly? i found i got better speeds when i had a play with some settings in the firewall... other than that i cant think of anything else that would cause it.

yes ive port forwarded my router so it uses 4444 it works excellent just that if one person is getting from me and ive nothing else connected to the net the max ive seen it run is at 39kbs for one folder of 12xmp3`s so i was just wondering if there is a way to open up the upload as if im d/loading i get items at 300kbs???

You know about asymmetric connections? Your download is a LOT faster than your upload. No way to increase your upload speed than ask your ISP to upgrade... or get a symmetric connection where up- and download speed are the same.

Example: My line is DSL 6000, means

download speed is 6016Kibit, equals 752KiB > that's what I get from the 'net
upload speed is 512Kibit, equals 64KiB > that's what other people get from me.

It doesn't matter, if FTP, HFS, P2P - practically your server is SENDING the file to the client, all they ever will get is your UPLOAD speed, which is not very much in most cases.


Ask your ISP about your upload speed if you don't know. If it's close to what your clients get from HFS, forget it. You can't improve it further.
