Ftp is orders of magnitude quicker than cp. Here's the situation.
File to copy: 25 Meg.
From location: Santa Clara, USA.
To location: Shanghai, China
Network connection: Not really sure but both Santa Clara and Shanghai
are in the same NT domain.
I tried the following:
$ time ncftpput sons-cc Release 18.104.22.168.images.tar.gz
22.214.171.124.images.tar.gz: 25.99 MB 81.70
$ time cp 126.96.36.199.images.tar.gz //sons-shanghai/users/ftp/release
Why such a huge difference! Had I thought that such a huge difference
would have occurred I would have switched to ftp long ago!
Give me ambiguity or give me something else.
