    It is basically letting the clients download from a http server instead of the game server. It's much faster.

    If you don't have the ability to create a fastDL server, then have the following lines in your server.cfg file:
    sv_downloadurl ""
    sv_allowdownload 1

    Just a warning that downloading maps will be much slower using this.

    sv_downloadurl "url to download goes here"

    edit: if your map has recently been imped it should be in tf2maps redirect so your server.cfg should look somewhat like this:
    Code:
    //download options
    sv_downloadurl "http://redirect.tf2maps.net"
    cl_allowdownload 1 // optional, i'm pretty sure having it off breaks sprays.
    cl_allowupload 1
    net_maxfilesize 64 // if your map has a big filesize
    edit2 you can easily check what maps are in the redirect on this page: http://redirect.tf2maps.net/maps
