understanding transfer speed display

Hi,

In my WLAN (54 Mbit) I see transfer speed of a flat file of "420KiB/s".

What does that mean ? is it 420 kByte / s or 420 kBit / s

What ever it is, tranlating 54 MBit to kBit and kByte is that:

Mbit kBit kByte
54 55.296 6.912

or what's wrong in my calculation ?

if my calculation is correct, why do I have such a slow transfer-speed in WINSCP ?

thanks for any tip, LaoDe

KiB stands for kibibyte.

capturing file transfer rate using WinScp

I am using winSCP to tranfer files to and from a remote device. while copying the copy progress bar is displayed with rate and time. is there any way to save the speed and time for tranfer that appears on the progress window? it disappears very fast and i need the information.

regular scp on linux give the info at terminal prompt after tranfer. Is there some way i can get that info from winSCP.

You can use console/terminal in WinSCP as well, if you prefer that.
