Thanks for your report.
What are you results using other SFTP clients (FileZilla, PSFTP)?

Can you try 5.6.4 RC and execute it from a command-line like: winscp.exe sftp://user@host/ /rawsettings TcpNoDelay=1 /log=session.log?
Please attach the log here.

Thanks for the test.
Can you please repeat the test with 5.6.4 RC to verify there are no external causes for the decrease?

Ah, please, ignore the 11.5 MB/s download "downgrade", it happened because the connection to my server somehow got dumbed down to 100Mbs instead of the usual 1000Mbs.

After renegotiation to 1000Mbs, the download is back to around 19 MBs (Kind of also get the feeling the download is capped).

Regardless, the upload should have been more than 5MBs on either connection mode, so the problem with upload remains the same.

Hey Martin.

I have tried 5.7. Unfortunately it gives the same speed as 5.6.5 RC.

Perhaps you could include a x64 version so we could confirm those assumptions?

It's not easy to make 64-bit version of WinSCP. We definitely aim for that, but it will take time.
