Copy Ftp on Server 2008 painfully slow

I have some btm scripts that run on my laptop XP Pro with an older version of Take Command, work fine, but somewhat slow

On server 2008, which I am using as my workstation, each line of copy ftp is very slow, maybe 20 seconds, and doesn't seem to copy anything anyway.

There is a 550 error on some lines (maybe all)

The windows firewall has an ftp outgoing rule to allow traffic on port 21

What can I do?

Thanks

Are you using IFTP?

It's definitely not a generic Server 2008 problem; I'm using that here
on two systems & ftp transfers are the same speed as any other Windows
version. (Maybe a little faster.)

Yes, using iftp.

I've been working on the old machine mainly, but I still need to migrate to my server 2008 workstation.

ANother thing I noticed, aside from being very slow, file by file, is that existing files on the target that were to be overwritten, were zeroed out.

Here is the script. I stopped it after the first file copy command:

END COPY OF SCRIPT RUN


Not only was the file not copied, but the file on the target server was deleted.


Any suggestions? This script runs on my XPPro workstation.
