Considering that file transfer in 2.5.8 was/is still kind of an adventure: Will we see significant improvements in 2.6.0 (rc2) ?
I confess I did not look through the 250+ jira tickets for an answer first.
Then try RC2 for yourself http://bamboo.igniterealtime.org/browse/SPARK-INSTALL4J-207/artifact/Install4j
I can't say there were lots of improvements, but some file transfer tickets were closed. Report your issues.
What issues did you experience with file transfer?
We never got 2.5.8 to sucessfully transferred any file bigger than a few hundred kB.
It also had the bad habbit wanting to store the received file in
c:/program files/spark/.... which obviously does not work when the logged in use is not an admin as
normal users dont have any write access to c:/program files/.... afaik.
So maybe it should default to c:/my documents/ or so...
Saving path has been changed in SPARK-1208 So it should save files in user's Downloads folder. That's with the new profile i suppose. If you had it pointing to some other place, it will retain old settings.
I started testing rc2 and the file transfer is much faster.
My first test with rc1, I was only able to tranfer at a few KB\sec, in rc2 its now MB/sec.
Where can I find this rc 2, and how can I implement it?
I'm still having problems for file transfer on openfire
I'm using openfire 3.71 and spark 2.6.3
Thank you very much
Use a nightly. The path was posted as answer to your cross post.
I have (had) a similiar problem, but I was using Jitsi (as client).
The file-transfer-Speed was at it's best arrount 17KB/s. The same file, sent with Spark (v2.6.3), was transfered with about 700KB/s.
This solved the transfer-speed problem I've had with external clients, but between clients in the same network it's still horrible slow (Gigabit-Connection between the clients).
