Limited data transfer speed with remote client

Question asked by PeterCooper on Feb 12, 2011


Limited data transfer speed with remote client


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X.6.6

Description of the issue

I'm running Filemaker pro 11.02 as a server on a 3.06 GHz Intel Core Duo iMac.  I have another iMac (2.0GHz Intel Core duo, same OS) connected via a 100Mbs LAN acting as a client connected through Open Remote. 

The client needs to load images (small, generally between 100k and 400k) for display.  Each image takes between 5 and 15 seconds to transfer.  Examining the Activity monitor it appears that the data transfer rate never exceeds 1.2Mbps. 

Is this an OSX problem or a filemaker problem?  Has anyone else experienced the same problem and if so do they have a solution?
