    Is there a way to throttle the bandwidth of an ftp connection. I would like to allow the option to only ftp at 64 kbs,128 kbs, etc…

    I am using the 1.1.4322 runtime version and version 3.2.8115.0 of XCeed.Ftp

    Thanks for your help in advance,

    The FtpClient and the FtpConnection classes don’t have this kind of parameter but, if you follow this thread http://xceed.com/CS/forums/thread/21267.aspx and you apply the opposite logic (i.e. a smaller buffer), you could be able to limit the bandwidth.  I will let you know if I can find a better way to do this.

    Thank you, I took a look and the 1.1 Framework version of the FtpClient Class does not have the DataTransferBufferSize property.

    If you are able to find anything, please let me know.

    Hi again,

    Just a suggestion (not professional or even personal).  I’ve performed a search on google and found this : http://www.netlimiter.com  …  Note that Xceed Software is not related to this product and we haven’t tested it either.  I would suggest to test the free “monitor” utility first.  It got a 4/5 score on Cnet website ( http://download.cnet.com/NetLimiter/3000-12512_4-10227458.html ).  I don’t have a better solution for the moment.

    Thanks for the link. We would not be able to use that. This is a change we wanted to provide to our clients as a feature in our product. If you should find a way, please keep me in mind.
