    SO for the past 5 years, i have been using the internet, getting download speeds of about 10-30kb/s (somedays 50kb/s) and it took aaages to download an album!

    Today i bought a VPS and for the fun of it, downloaded an album and it hit speeds of 3.0MB/s :O i was shocked .. it downloaded in less than a minute!!

    Now, what i want to know is: can i transfer that album to my home computer? If so, what is the quickest way (not uploading and downloading as that would be pointless)

    Thank You

    well... unless u go in the datacenter and burn the data on a CD or DVD the only way is to download from the VPS. guess what speed u will have? yeah, 10-30kbps.

    transfer = download or upload.

    and maybe u should switch the ISP. what country are u in with those low speeds?

    Just set the downloaded file to (any) public folder the download it using your ip (with correct path off course).

    I use the same method due my bad home connection, I even browse using my VPS.

    Find some badass compression specifically for audio. Can't recommend any but look for the stuff game rippers are using. Back in the day a 20 mb archive expanded to 200 mb lossless audio.

    I use IIS7 for this, but unless you know how to further secure it and/or turn it on and off at will, your best bet is to use a simpler one, like AnalogX's SimpleServer (you can turn it on/off at will), then save your files to a subdirectory of root and access it via your browser. IE. Let's say your server's IP is 192.168.0.1, you create a subdirectory called "downloadxyz", then connect to your server like so:

    Code:
    http://192.168.0.1/downloadxyz/
    Just a few caveats:

    - Make sure to create an empty index.html on your www root, and use a hard to guess subdirectory.
    - Make sure you have directory listing set to on on whatever server you chose (you could also use something like Wamp or EasyApache, etc.
    - Make sure you turn your webserver off after you're finished, to avoid people scanning ports for vulnerabilities.

    No matter how you do it, you'll need to transfer files from your VPS to your home computer, so you'll still be limited by your home connection.

    You can try VPN connection:

    1. Upload files to dropbox or on your subdomain
    2. Connect from your home computer to internet through VPN
    3. Download at greater speed than 20-30 kbps

    Viola!

    I am in the same boat except its because torrent traffic gets limited on my connection but other traffic does not. Is there anything easier then dropbox?

    I was just googling this same question earlier and funnily enough BHW was the top link on page 1.

    zb.ouykcuf - Try teamviewer. It's a remote desktop program but lets you share files between server and pc too: http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx

    Dropbox. easy to install on your VPS and then just access your stuff from any system
