I am using sharpbits in a windows service to transfer files from one server to the machine running the windows service.
When Resuming a job, it takes around 2 minutes before the transfer starts.

Am I missing something ?

Why is it so long to start copying files ?

Thanks by advance for your answers,

I had the same problem. Check your proxy settings, If you are in a LAN, you should use no proxy:

bitsJob.ProxySettings.ProxyUsage = SharpBits.Base.ProxyUsage.NoProxy;

Hope this help
