Recently I’ve had a need to copy a large amount of files from one PC to another on LAN. For better speed and reliability I chose wired Ethernet connection but the transfer speed was very slow at 500-600 kbps! Both machines had Windows 7 x64 installed. Using Task Manager under Networking tab, Network Utilization was showing only around 0.25% for Local Area Connection.

However, because it is not signed by any of the trusted certificate authorities included with web browsers, it’s not trusted by browsers by default and can’t be used to verify the identity of your server.
