I am having issues with players downloading at a slow rate. Some taking 20 minutes just to upload a map. I had initially thought maybe it was a client side issue, but when 3 people are having the same issue, it seems as if it is a server-side issue. What should I be looking for to fix on this? What config files, cvars, etc.?

Could be that the players are not disconnecting for the download. In the case when the files are downloaded from the game server, the sv_dl_maxRate cvar controls the maximum speed available. However, the used rate will be the smaller value of the sv_dl_maxrate and the client rate. Forcing clients to disconnect when downloading would give download speed that is dependent of the redirect http/ftp server limitations and the players download bandwidth without the ET server interfering.

In other words, not having a download server currently is doing this...

If you have a website you could back ground the files for downloading.
So you set you redirect to http://yoursite.what/server/
Then on your site you have a folder called server and in that you have folders etmain (where maps go) and silent (where pk3 mods go)

That way your download will be from the web and not the game server and the players do not have to disconnect.

Just make sure the file structure in the redirect folder tallys up with the file structure on your game server.
