My FTP is Really Slow or Disconnects Often. Why?

There are a few reasons why your FTP application could be slow or frequently disconnecting. This could be due to your passive settings. You can check this by doing the following:
  1. Open your FTP application.
  2. Go to the FTP Options and locate Passive Mode.
    • In Filezilla, this is located under Edit » Settings » FTP » Transfer Mode.
  3. If Passive Mode is selected, un-select this option. If Passive Mode is notselected, select this option.
  4. Try using your FTP again.

If this does not resolve the issue, revert back to your previous Passive Mode configuration.
