I've installed hpn ssh using this command:
sudo port install openssh +hpn
I want to transfer lost data (100GB at least) using sftp command terminal command.
I am wondering, is installing hpn ssh all I need to do to gain speed advantage with sftp command? After installing hpn ssh, my current upload speed is around 1.8MB (i have a line of 2.5 MB, so that is pretty close). Sadly, I didn't do a test before installing it. stupid me
Also, I noticed that transferring lots of individual files takes a lot more time than transferring 1 big file. Is zipping all the files and than sending that 1 zip the recommended way of transfering to remote host? I would prefer the option to not zip the files first, since zipping 100GB takes some time.
If you know a better solution to transfer large amount of data to remote host, I am open to it:)
