I'm running an FTP server via ProFTPD on my RasberryPi 4 (4 GB RAM) as well as a Samba share folder to my Windows. I've got a sync setup from my PC to my pi HDD using Goodsync, and when I use my Samba share to sync it errors out when I'm transferring big video files (it got stuck on a 13 GB video file).
So that's another issue you may be able to help me with too! But anyway, so for the larger files to get synced over I have to change sync via the FTP. So, my transfer speeds over samba are great over my Gigabyte LAN reaching 90-120 MB/s, however over ftp it's maxing at about 20 MB/s. Any ideas why it would be going slower? Should I try using another FTP server on the pi other than PROFTPD? It's running explicitly TLS BTW. Or maybe should I use a SSH FTP server? Cheers, Josh
EDIT: Same thing happens for NFS share on windows, it locks up with large file copies. For NFS/Samba it only locks up when copying to an external HDD (USB3), but not to the Pi SD
EDIT: I tried SFTP and it was slightly faster then FTPS (29MB/s) but still to slow. Any way I can speed up SFTP?
