I have installed proftpd in my Ubuntu. When I was downloading it was slow enough to make me searching for some answers… Well I found some. Here they are:
#UseReverseDNS — Toggle rDNS lookups UseReverseDNS off
#IdentLookups — Toggle ident lookups IdentLookups off
Placing these lines at your /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf you will get more speed at your file transfers.
Open a terminal window and type in:
sudo apt-get install rar
sudo ln -fs /usr/bin/rar /usr/bin/unrar
After that you can find Archive Manager in the Gnome menu under Applications -> Accessories.
