Topic "Request: bandwith control like "scp -l #""

Author Message


A way to limit the bandwith used in background/queue mode would be very useful. Either a text box with the the maximum Kbit/s like the OpenSSH scp's "-l" option, or a slider like in WinSCP's forground/modal copy.
I find the %speed slider a little difficult to use. When I move it from 100% to 50%, I can't tell what affect that has brcause the CPS shows an average for the entire transfer, not the current CPS.

WinSCP is a great program. I give it to all my users. I usually stick to OpenSSH because I'm an old Unix guy, and because I want to control my bandwidth.

Thanks for all your work!!
