View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Ubuntu slows down our internet connection, a lot!

June 6th, 2008, 05:06 PM
When one of my ubuntu computers is off our internet speed if very much faster compared to when it is on. First I thought it had something to do with the ftp server I was running but when I stopped it the connection was still as slow. Then I thought of the ssh server but the same happened when I stopped it. Is it possible that my computer have been compromised and someone else is running some sort of server on it or using it in a bot network?

My ftp server is vsftp.
