Hello, I am copy a file from the server ( to my PC ( The connection between the server and my PC is through the MPLS could. It took me more than 14 hours to copy the file (300MB). That is not right. I am using Wireshark to capture the traffic but I am not sure what I am looking at because I do not see any TCP handshakes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Where did you do the capturing?

How large is your capture file, does it contain any data that does look like your file-transfer (based on the amount of packets)? Which protocols do those packets show?

If your trace does not contain the file-transfer data, did you capture on the correct interface?
