    Very slow network throughput Host->Guest but not Guest<-Host

    Crispy Lurker

      Host system is linux debian and the guest system is Winxp using vmplayer.

       

      I am using the bridged networking option and everything works great except for one very annoying thing.

      Network transfers moving files from host->guest over the network is incredibly slow something <1KB/s.

      This is independant of protocol, I've tried scp, ftp, and samba.

      Transfering files using the above protocols from the guest->host is fine getting something in the order of 4000-7000 KB/s

      guest->Any other network host is fine

      host->Any other network host is fine

      Any other network host ->host is fine

      Any other network host ->Guest is fine

       

      So now I quite puzzled as to why as if it works fine in one direction but not the other I doubt its a problem with the disk being read and then writtened to straight away.

       

      Any ideas ?

       

      Thx in advance
