Just got Gentoo setup on my box...whoa...this rocks. Besides fighting with postfix to deliver in mbox format, everything is pretty much smooth and fast.
One thing is stumping me, though...when I ftp into my gentoo box from inside my LAN, I can only upload to the box at something like 100 k/second. That's really slow on a 100Mbps LAN, where I usually get several megs per second. I know it isn't the eth0 interface in this machine, as downloading from other machines into the Gentoo box yields normal 3-6 mbyte speeds.
Am I missing something obvious here? Is there some kind of speed limit set for proftpd? I'm working pretty much with the default config (and no, I don't run ftpd full-time, only as needed, and it is firewalled).
