Ok, I am trying to use lftp but I receive a lot of messages like this:
x86_64: Getting files information (22%) [Waiting for response...]
"Delaying before reconnect"
.. and after 8 hours, lftp had synced 4GiB ... very very very slowly
... My Internet connection is not the problem ( I can download DVD iso
images really fast) and the source server neither ( I have tried to
download CentOS 6.3 x86_64 iso image and the download was really fast)
Where can it be the problem??
