How to speed up the download speed

 Hi, 

Today, I have a Test. I download a 1G file from Google Drive. I found that the download speed is around 2xx-3xxkb/s. If I download the file w/o through the firewall, the speed will jump to 1M to 2M /s. 

I don't know this download speed 2xx-3xxkb/s is correct or it can be improved. 

Please Help!

Thanks!

**I haven't set any Qos.

  • Did u tried downloading a big file from your local server?Once i was facing the problem of almost  speed internet.By one feedback,i tried downloaded a giant size file from my local server.Be very much sure with the format of file.From my place debian was cool,it may vary for your locality.

     

     

  • Hi Beverly Strom,

    So Sorry! I am not sure the "LOCAL SERVER" meaning. You mean downloading a big file from our DC server through the intranet or download the big file from the other Hong Kong Server. If the second one, I am so sorry. Because in Hong Kong, Cloud server needs fee. So Google is very helpful for us.

  • here you can find a local debian mirror

    https://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/#mirrors

    if you try to load a file from (or sync data with...) servers located in europe us US you may pass local security systems, which slow down transfer

  • Hi D,

    download from this link : mirror.xtom.com.hk/.../debian-live-9.8.0-i386-cinnamon.iso

    Testing result are following:

    With Firewall : around 5M

    without Firewall : around 6M - 55M (So large fluctuation)

  • Your speed information confuses me a bit ...
    at the beginning of the topic 1-2 MB/s were reported without firewall and 200-300kb/s with firewall.
    "Today, I have a Test. I download a 1G file from Google Drive. I found that the download speed is around 2xx-3xxkb/s. If I download the file w/o through the firewall, the speed will jump to 1M to 2M /s.
    I don't know this download speed 2xx-3xxkb/s is correct or it can be improved."
    you already measured 300 MB/s with firewall.
    Now we reach 5 MBit with ... and only 6-30 Mbit without FW.
    That is confusing.
    Sorry, i have no more ideas.
    I think, the firewall isn't the source of the problem.

  • Hi Dirkkotte,

    I don't know how to improve too. But the firewall really drops the download from Google Drive and OFCA testing. 

    Basically, I use Web Protection function only.

    Following testing disable all options, but it haven't any improvement. So I think the problem comes from the firewall which we don't know why only. 

    Do you have any new idea? 

    Thanks!
