  Limiting speed with openssh

Until now I was using rsync when I needed to limit bandwith, but on this morning I could read this on IRC :

<la_loOse> scp a aussi un -l pour limiter la bande passante

In english: scp has a -l option to limit bandwidth

And indeed, in the manpage:

     -l limit
             Limits the used bandwidth, specified in Kbit/s.

I have no idea how old is this option...

You can limit speed of every connection by using a little application named "tricke"<br><br>Is very useful.

I think it's trickle<br>I have never used it since I know it exists... maybe I will someday :)

It is a pretty old option. That said, rsync over ssh is the business, especially with dodgy remote connections.

This option is very useful but is about bits not bytes.<br><br>Windows has a broken IP stack, so every time i need to upload my tarballs but don't want to disconnect all the windows computer on the LAN, i use it.
