Topic: Set Write Buffer Size?

Is there a way to set the write buffer size for FTP transfers? I'm sending large files (> 100GB) to an FTP server that has a relatively high overhead for each block of data received, and the admin has suggested I increase my buffer size to around 8 MB. I got the impression from the docs that the BlockSize property would do what I wanted, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

The blocksize property should probably be left at its default (8196) due to the default size of TCP packets; this provides about a kb of overhead. Additionally, there appears to be a typo in our documentation: the property is in bytes, not kilobytes.
You'd probably want to instead look at the MaxTransferRate property and test with your server to determine the best transfer rate.
