Windows Networking/Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) V/S File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
Do FTP will allow Faster Downloading and uploading files from
Servers then using Remote Desktop Protocol ?.
As a example if a file say 5 MB size has to be uploaded or downloaded from server then it will take less time for downloading and uploading files using FTP then using RDP ?.
Awaiting your reply,
Thanks & Regards,

In personal experience, I have not run a test in a recent times, but in the past I found that even in the example of transferring a file from a server, FTP is faster then doing a simple file transfer (i.e. in Windows).
However, Secure FTP might slow things down a little bit as there is security/encryption which will pass through the bytes and slow down transfers.
Speed however will be not that incredibly faster. For example, if it takes a 5MB transfer 10 seconds in FTP, it might take 11 seconds in standard file transfer.
If large file sizes will be frequently moved, ensure that your client/server connections are at least 1 GBit, to ensure the fast file transfers.
Hope that helps
