I have been working with OpenSSH on a Debian system for quite some time.
I have run some tests and found that certain machine which connect via
only get half the bandwith they do if they connect with normal ftp.
Someone surgested that it had to do with the power of the CPU of the machine
which is downloading but the tests that I have run made a Pentium 3 500Mhz
run smoothly at 3Mbit downloading a huge file.
I ran another test with a Pentium 3 800 Mhz downloading from my Debian
server. If I connect via sftp-server I get a speed of aprox 1Mbit. If I
connect with ftp or http, downloading the same file, I get 2Mbit.
Can this be fixed in some way? It's clearly not an issue of some kind of
speed limit with sftp-server since I have done 3Mbit. I have testet the
speed with different client software but it is the same result.
Thanks in advance.
