Slow SFTP?


#1

I have recently noticed that SFTP access to my webspace is surprisingly slower than normal FTP access. Are other people seeing this problem? Could I have something not configured properly? Or is it supposed to be like this?

I’m using FileZilla and transferring via SFTP (port 22), but it takes so much longer to get directory listings and the like. I can’t believe that the encryption takes that much time to happen. Might I be missing something?

Does anyone else see this problem? SFTP is significantly slower than FTP, and I’m simply wondering if I’m doing something wrong.

Why not drop support a line and ask if there’s any issues with your server, or if that’s to be expected?
