The server is equipped with an 6 core / 12 tread 3.6 GHz CPU (Intel Core 
i7-980x   and  a Raid 10 Disk array.
The cpu is 90% idle (including webserver traffic and mailserver traffic) 
during downloads.

There is no encryption because the samba VM it is over vpn  (I get fulls 
speed with FTP over VPN)

For the rest I will test your hints.

Kind Regards Knut
