Hey folks. I need 30Gb of material uploaded to a new download server we are mobilising. In the UK, most ISP's cap upload speed to 40kps, so uploading 30Gb would take around 2 weeks. Could anyone with high speed internet and familiar with FTP help me out?

Thanks.

Can it be split by some parts?

Not sure what you mean? What I need is as follows. The contents of one of our satellite download servers downloaded via FTP, and then re-uploaded to our new U.S. network provider. The integrity of the directory structure must remain intact.

I'm looking for someone with an uncapped LAN connection. Even broadband or DSL would be too slow.

Then I doubt I can help ATM, sorry :( Still have no optical line at home...

That's not a question I was just interested if it could be done in several separate sessions: e.g. 30% of structure today+30% tomorrow+40% day after :) or as one big sack of info.

How can I know the upload speed?

I only know the whole speed is 100 mbit/s but dunno the upload speed.

I could only connect to the U.S.

to new york it's 568 kbps and download speed 5081 kbps.

It should be possible to connect to Europe too.:p

We've got a pretty fast connection at the university, and I'd love to help you out, but unfortunatly I don't know the first thing about FTP. :(

EDIT: I did a quick test on speedtest.net

results: Amsterdam (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd211/Jacen_Album/speedtest_Amsterdam.jpg) up:13131 kb/s down:25705 kb/s
Salt Lake City (http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd211/Jacen_Album/speedtest_Saltlakecity.jpg) up:804 kb/s down:5560 kb/s

A rather strong dependency on the location apparently.

^ Still slow in 568kbps (that is aprox 71KB/s), it will need 117 hours aprox only running at full speed.

Then I doubt I can help ATM, sorry :( Still have no optical line at home...

^ It can be done, we can compress it first, then split it and then upload it, after this we can extract it in the server. So everyone can upload their own part speeding the up this :).

Nice idea, but could be complicated for one who installs ;) They (let's say server side) can deny inflating and concatenating parts via FTP.

tlr, I could go to my university and help you out there.
Depending on how long it would take, I have either one of these options:
- A symmetrical line of ~12 megabyte per second (that's megabyte, not megabit!) up and down, available to me only during working hours
- A line that handles about 800 kilobyte (not bit) up, available to me 24/7. I have a second laptop on this line that I don't really use a lot, so I could leave this running for a while.

Edit: you should've gotten a location with FXP ... :p

I have cable shared by two comps, If you give me some instructions maybe I could be helpful. It's pretty fast, but not the best best.

That would be most awesome. Could you PM me? Thanks very much!
