Slow transfer speeds from samba share (SOLVED)

Post by Sinister » Sun May 20, 2018 11:31 am

Hi i am having a problem with slow transfer speeds from a samba share through a VPN.

So my setup is that i have an Unraid server 6.5.1 running OpenVpn-as i am able to connect without any issues i can brows shares even connect to the webGUI.

The problem comes when i want to transfer say a 1.4GB file from my remote share to my local linux mint 18.3 cinnamon machine.

the transfer speeds sit between 973 kBs and cap at exactly 1Mb. any file i try to transfer has a painfully long estimated time where as on a windows machine
it transfers in half the time and is way faster i cant accept that 1Mb is the maximum speed it can do on linux mint 18.3.

can anyone shed some light on what i can do to improve this ?. thank you in advance

That is commercial server version ?
Did you try both UDP and TCP, any difference ?
Firewall in Mint is disabled ?

Can you provide log of server @ --verb 4 from start server until client disconnect ?
Same for client.

Substitute private data in logs (use find and replace in text editor).

Ah, that`s not right.
973 kB/s = ~7.8 Mb/s

Please make sure you state the speeds correctly.

Thank you for your reply i apologize for the inaccuracy i am getting 973kB/s and capping at 1.0MB it will not go any higher.

I am currently in the process of trying TCP just setting it up now and as for verb 4 i dont quite understand as i am still a newbie to some of this

Just tried with TCP and speeds are actually worse, the firewall in mint is disabled and has always been from the start and no its openvpn access server

Ok,

So 1 MB/s would be ~8 Mb/s
Does that come close to your server side upload and/or client side download?

Networks are from the same provider and same speeds 200 Mbps down and 10Mbps up

Then there seems nothing badly wrong with speed.
You download with 8 Mb/s and your server upload is 10 Mb/s, that`s 80%, not really bad.

Then I thank you sir for taking the time to deal with my ignorance I sincerely thought I should be getting more.
But with that conversion it makes sense will mark this as solved
