      Is this caused by latency?

      Sorry, didn't really know where to put this, but when I upload to a remote server in USA via SCP/SFTP, I only get ~50kb/s instead of the 85 I should get. I was told this is because it uploads via one connection or something (as it uses an SSH connection) and standard FTP should be faster. So before I install a proper FTP server, is this because of latency to USA (east coast, NYC. usually get pings of about 110ms) or just SCP?

      Thanks.

      I always found that when SCPing files it's dramatically slower than FTPing from the same server.
      I figured that it was be because of the encryption overheads and it was the price to pay for the added security.

      Okay, thanks for the answer. Know any good CLI FTP servers for Linux?
