Many users have commented that their internet connection becomes sluggish during large file transfers. High latency and low throughput is expected, especially when uploading through asymmetrical connections such as those provided by most DSL and cable modems. Lucky for us, there’s an easy solution!
Quality of Service (QoS) capable routers are very common and can solve this problem. We simply need to tell our QoS router that uploading a large file to 8svn is not as urgent as our Skype calls, YouTube videos, or other internet traffic. Just add one rule to your router’s QoS preferences that says traffic on port 8443 is not urgent and tell your subversion client to connect to 8svn servers at port 8443. Done!
Your new repository urls should look like https://svn.8svn.com:8443/USERNAME/svn/REPOSITORY
Port 8443 is only used to make 8svn’s subversion traffic more easily identifiable to your router’s QoS scheduler. Standard SSL port 443 will continue to function as normal. Using the new port is completely optional.
