    Your upload bandwidth is insufficient.

    My provider allows me to increase the speed, what is necessary ?

    You need minimum 100mbs upload if the gateway and node are separate machines. In case of running the node and the gateway on the same machine you need atheist 150mbs up

    Applicant seems to have experience in operating servers. Upload bandwidth seems to be sufficient. Not sure about hardware specs.

    He has only 50mbps upload so its not sufficient

    Right, I have overlooked that.

    I can increase to 200-300 upload, this is done by changing the tariff with the provider
