We are experiencing a strange behaviour why using FTP over an MPLS T-1. Normally when we use FTP this way, the transfer takes as much bandwidth as is available. When we start a transfer to this particular site, I can automatically see the circuit utilize the whole 1.54 Mbps however the FTP transfer only shows 180Kbps. I called the T-1 provider to check and at the time we were transfering, utilization was 100% of the 1.54 Mbps while the FTP again showed only 180kbps. There is no other traffic using this circuit so I don't understand what is happening with the rest of the bandwidth...
Any ideas or suggestions? We've tested with an identical T-1 to another remote site and identical AIX servers getting full t-1 speed data transfer.
