Steam for Linux

Steam for Linux

Slow download for steamcmd
I wanted to download app files for a game to host a dedicated server.
Problem is that the download is really slow. Server has 1GB/s bandwith, not throttled (wget works with max speed). Only Steam is damn slow, it would take days to finish the download.

Any workarounds?

Waiting until february?

idk It's just a guess – it's winter, Steam sale and holidays currently - probably the busiest time of the year for the servers…

Maybe someone else has more helpful ideas - Good luck!
Oh, I think I found an error. Had to open the TCP ports in iptable for downloading.
