Upload speed

Passive mode

Use large buffers

This sets the communication library to attempt to optimize the transfer by adjusting network options. In many case you should see a performance improvement.

Allow copy operation

This option will enable the "Copy" menu to appear. The copy operation is in fact a download followed by an upload. Therefore, the remote content is highly sensitive for security reasons, or the operation can be detrimental to performance. As a best practice we strongly suggest to disable the operation.
