Increase FTP download speed in Filezilla

The default Ubuntu settings do not allow Filezilla to download at full speed (each thread is limited to 800kb/s by default).

To erase this limitation, type in terminal:
sudo sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_rmem=‘40960 873800 62914560’
sudo sysctl -w net.core.rmem_max=8000000

Unfortunately you must type this every time you restart the computer.



Or use /etc/sysctl.d/ to make them persistent.
