Slow SFTP Connection to Network Shares

Post by jlee1 »


Right now I have an Ubuntu install of GoAnywhere Services. I have created an SFTP account and pointed it to a Windows share. Unfortunately it take around 5 seconds to connect to the SFTP account when it is pointed to a network share. However, when I point it to a local directory on the GoAnywhere Services server it is almost instant connect. Is there any way to speed up the connection to the SFTP account pointing to the Windows share?

Going to need more information on what you're trying to accomplish.

1. SFTP Account?
-- Do you mean a Resource pointing to a Windows Server?
-- Or, a Web User that has a folder pointing to a Windows SMB Network Share?

2. 5 seconds to connect to network share.
-- Is this the time it takes a resource to connect?
-- Or via Web User to a defined SMB Network Share?

Please advise...
