Hey, I'm Duane Edwards, and this is my blog where I muse about the various .net technologies that I'm interested in. By day I'm a Senior Software Engineer at HealthTrack Medical Systems in Brisbane, Australia.

Speed Up WinSCP downloads for SFTP and SCP connections

On your login screen, select your SFTP or SCP connection then click 'Edit', then click 'Advanced...':

Select 'Connection' in the list and try disabling 'Optimize connection buffer size':

In my case this increase speeds from ~10kbs up to ~2.5 mbps.

Hope this helps,
