The following tips are intended to help users maximize performance when accessing their BrickFTP site.
Tip: Set the number of simultaneous connections to the maximum supported by your FTP client.
To increase the number of simultaneous connections in FileZilla, go to Edit > Settings > Transfers and increase the Maximum simultaneous transfers setting to 10.
To increase the number of simultaneous connections in Cyberduck, first go to Edit > Preferences > Transfers and set Transfer Files to “Open multiple connections”.
Then, go to to Window > Transfers and increase the counter in the lower right to the maximum.
Tip: Use the Google Chrome web browser
For the best possible experience with BrickFTP, we recommend the Google Chrome browser. Chrome supports advanced HTML 5 features, like uploading entire folders to BrickFTP using drag and drop, a feature that is unsupported in Internet Explorer and Safari. If you must use another browser, be sure you’re running the latest version available.
Mac OS X tip: There are several gotchas when using WebDAV with OS X and Finder. Due to the way Finder operates aggressively with WebDAV, there are a few recommendations that we highly recommend. If you choose not to follow these performance optimization suggestions, you may get unexpected results.
