Can you tell me why so slow WinSCP?
On a Fast Ethernet network WinSCP reaches 1Mbps.
On the same hardware normal Linux scp is 7Mbps.
Maybe different encryption algorithm? It can also be fault of WinSCP. Have you tried psftp/pscp?So I know scp eats CPU power but why not under Linux?
I tried many things without gaining more speed.Have you tried psftp/pscp?
I've also tried every encryption algorithm, multiple machines, SFTP vs SCP, SSH1 vs SSH2, etc. Everything I do on multiple machines seems to be capped at around 100KBps upload speed. One machine is a Core 2 Duo at 2.0GHz with a 7200rpm disk and while WinSCP is uploading, the CPU idles at around 10% or so, no where near it's processing limit. This happens on both Windows Vista SP1 and Windows XP SP2. We've tested our routers and firewalls by using a slower Linux machine that easily uploads at our full upload bandwidth (7.5Mbps).
Thanks for sharing this!
Does FTP protocol allow that? I do not think so.It seems that WinSCP, when configured for FTP over TLS (FTPS), opens a separate TCP connection for each file transfer. For copying folders with many files and sub-directories, this is extremely inefficient. Each new TCP connection needs to get the certificate before the transfer. Shouldn't there be a way of re-using existing open connections? And re-using multiple concurrent connections at that?
I do not see any mention of reusing the connection for multiple transfers.Some clients support this capability. I'm not sure that is is part of the FTP protocol itself, but a workaround where the client perhaps opens several control connections - not sure.
Here's a client that supports it - http://help.globalscape.com/help/cuteftp9/Making_multiple_concurrent_connections.htm
