The transfer rate when I upload/download files within Projetex is much lower than my actual transfer rate with the server. Why?

The main reason for the performance difference between Copy-Paste transfering and Projetex File Manager transfering lies in different procedures which are used for both cases. When you transfer files within Projetex, you establish a secure encrypted connection between your Projetex Server and Projetex Workstation.
this way, you can be sure that all transfered data is safe and cannot be intercepted and decrypted during transfer. Encrypted connections always cause a reduced transfer rate, because a lot of traffic is used for background security processes to maintain all packets sent secured. We are constantly improving our software architecture. However, there still is an unavoidable performance difference between direct and secure encrypted file transfer processes.
