[quote]If ssh is faster, then maybe sftp will be faster than ftp?
I hoped so, too, but SFTP is as slow as FTP.
The thing is, when you work on the shell with SSH you don’t notice how fast the connection is. No one can type that fast
Only when the SSH connection is very slow, you will notice it, because even an ls command can take a while…
Maybe it wasn’t a very good idea to compare FTP with SSH in the first place.
One thing is true for sure: downloading is way (WAY!) faster than uploading with Dreamhost.
