Slow File Upload RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new HP Proliant DL 360 G7 server running Windows Server X64 Standard R2.  The server is running a raid 5 configuration.
    I’m trying to upload a file to the server using a Windows 7 pro machine.  The file download speed is ok(about 10mb/s through cat 5e cable), but the upload speed is terrible (about 1mb/s).
    To resolve this I’ve:
    1.)	 Disabled the firewall on both machines.
    2.)	Disabled IPV6 on the server
    3.)	I ran: netsh interface tcp set global res=disable on server
    4.)	I ran: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disable on server
    5.)	I ran: netsh interface tcp set global chimney=disable on server
    6.)  Set Speed & Duplex to 1GB Full Auto on server
    After rebooting the server, the speed increased a little.

    I'm on a GB connection, but the upload and download speed is only (about 10MB/s), and
    when I get a closer connection to the server I get about 20MB/s. I think it should be faster since I have GB cards in both the server and
    the PC.

    Is there anything I can do to increase the network speed?

  • Hi,

    There are a couple of things that could be the causes. First, update the network driver to latest version.

    Second, directly connect the server to this Windows 7 with a switch and remove all the appliances connected to it. This will eliminate the cause of network appliances.
