Both machines have 2 Ghz Athlons, plenty of RAM, high speed disks; the LAN is sully switched.
If it was FTP I would get something like 8-10 Mbps. Any idea why SCP performs at around 5% compared to FTP.
BTW, you might wonder why I am using SCP (instead of FTP) and bitcing about the speed. The answer is the files on the remote machine have silly characters (like ':' etc. ) in them. Thanks to WinSCP I dont have to worry about the filename issues.
Thank you for this great tool.
