When another user has to download MOD's and maps etc after connecting to a hosted UT game it appears to be very slow. Takes about 3 mins to copy 3MB! @ 100mbs! But if I copy a 30mb file through net neighbourhood it takes about three seconds. Internet connection is set to LAN and Optimise for LAN is selected on the host. Two machines using cross-over cable. Both 100mbs cards.

Take a look at your Unreal Tournament.ini file and scroll down to [Engine.Player]
My LAN speed is set at 20,000 and I have no such problems. However, I only run a net work at 10mbs.

BTW, if the other machine isn't all that high spec, it can take a while to download stuff since UT is already doing plenty of HD swapping as it is.

You're on the right track. I added about four zero's after the LAN setting and presto! It cranks. I'm guessing those settings are in bytes.
