Here are the results of test I ran to transfer a 32MB file. In the tests, the ssh server always ran on the W2K3sp1 machine. The 32MB file consisted of 1024 * 1024 * 32 spaces. As such I would have though compression should have given some phenomenal results. Surprisingly it didn't... except in the case of the copSSH-HPN client against copSSH-HPN server.
- W2K3sp1 w/ dual 1263MHz CPUs and 512MB RAM
- XPsp2 w/ 433MHz CPU and 128MB RAM
Copying the 32 MB file from the command line using copy and UNC paths (i.e. w/o ssh) gave the following results:
WinXPsp2 --> W2K3sp1 (put):
10.576 secs (3098.312 KB/s)
9.644 secs (3397.924 KB/s)
