when i hit the retry it usually connects and then i do a file transfer from my windows machine to my linux machine. except i am getting speeds of about 250B/s Sad

anyone else get this?


because i am stressed out, i forgot to mention that this is over my lan which is 100meg. i can easily ssh to my linux box with no lag and tcptraceroute is ok so i dont know whats going on.

Have you tried other SFTP client? Can you try PuTTY SSH client and PSFTP?

I'll try tonight when i get home from work.

FYI both the switch and the two network cards in the respective machines are all running at 100 full duplex.


| linux@work|
// <-the interweb
| 4-port adsl |
| router/switch |---------------,
.............. /................................. \
............../.................................... \
----------V--------............... --------V------
| linux@home |............| XP@home |
-------------------............... ---------------

what i am trying to do is transfer from XP@home to linux@home using scp

if i do a file transfer or receive between linux@home and linux@work it works fine and the speed is very adequate.

i havent been able to see what happens if i do a transfer from the linux@home to the XP@home machine. i would have thought it's safe to presume that; if the transfer between the linux@home to the linux@work is working that the problem rests with the XP@home machine.

so to sum up:

if linux@home is the server-

a transfer from linux@home to linux@work = fast
a transfer to linux@home from XP@home = slow
a transfer to linux@home from linux@work = fast

Tonight i'll try pscp from XP@home to linux@home. If that works do you know what that would mean? what information do you want to see next if this is the case?
