rsync performance question

I seem to be having a performance problem with rsync.
I have done some testing of rsync and ftp.  If I do
a transfer (either way) with ftp, I get about 500 Kbytes/sec.
Using rsync to do the same transfer (either way) I only get
about 50 Kbytes/sec.  I am only testing straight file
copies.  There is a firewall which I believe is configured
properly.  The ethernet interface is running at 10 Mbit
full duplex.  Does anyone have an idea of where I should be
looking to solve this problem?

Thank you,
