#4181 closed enhancement (fixed)

HTTP transfers without SSL

I have a question about s3 download speeds. My ISP, Rogers here in Canada, downgrade the service and speed of ANY encrypted traffic. To say this is a major pain in the butt is an understatement. I've been playing around with an s3 account and have noticed a HUGE speed improvement in downloads if you take off the "s" in https.…….. when initiating a download from a browser on a publicly accessible file. The difference is 5MB/s with it off and 500KB/s with it on!

My question is could there be a way to initiate a download (or upload) within Cyberduck to s3 without it being encrypted?

This would be most beneficial if possible. Let me know if anything like this is possible.

Thanks in advance, Trent Richmond

Currently there is only support for encrypted traffic (https://). I leave the ticket open but currently I cannot tell you if it's going to be implemented in a future release.
