My host is OS X and I'm running Windows 7 as guest in VirtualBox 3.0.4. Network in NAT-mode. Having problems with FTP transfers. After a while (20-30 files) the transfers drops in speed and finally halts. I then have to reconnect and it works for another round.

Any ideas how to make this work?

  • Which way are you ftp'ing, i.e. which end is the client and which is the server? – jrg Aug 25 '09 at 15:22
  • The server is on a web host. I have tried a few and there are problem with all of them, so the issue must be in my network setup. I have tried two clients in my Win 7 host, FlashFXp and FileZilla, both of them is not working well and most of the time I can only transfer a few files. I have read a bit about port forwarding and that it might fix the issue, gonna try that later. – jesperlind Aug 25 '09 at 18:03

I found the solution. I switched adapter from NAT to bridged network (I think it's called like that on a english system). FTP transfers now works great.

  • Interesting, I don't even get connection in bridged mode, only in nat mode. – inf3rno Jun 21 '18 at 8:58
