Poor ftp performance to ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
PTS Case 7
IUCC users reported they were only able to get about 3Mbps FTP throughput to NIH (US National Institutes of Health and it seemed the NIH ftp site repeatedly changed address between 220.127.116.11 (via Abilene) to 18.104.22.168 (via the commercial Internet). However, after a week of running tests between various European FTP servers IUCC were satisfied that, first, there was nothing wrong with their FTP servers and host, and second, the problems with NIH were of a temporary nature.
