FileMaker software downloads are very slow

Discussion created by jbarnum on Mar 4, 2016

Downloading from fmdl.filemaker.com to an Amazon EC2 instance in the us-east-1 region is getting a sustained download speed of 560 KB/sec. This is not a one-time occurrence, it always takes a very long time to download software from FileMaker.

 

The URL I'm downloading from right now is:

 

http://fmdl.filemaker.com/maint/emea_fba_ftn/fmpa_14.0.4.406_x64.exe

 

This takes about 10 minutes to download, which is very annoying because I set up new virtual machines very often and this slows the process down greatly.
