Re: How to improve scp speed?
File transfers in scp are encrypted and encryption is CPU intensive.
Either your local workstation or your server might not be able to
encrypt file transfer stream at the same speed, your connection is
able to transfer it. You may try to choose different encryption
algorithm on Login dialog. Blowfish is usually a lot faster than AES.
Also SSH-1 is in general less CPU intensive than SSH-2. SCP protocol
is usually faster than SFTP too.
