Dear Lazywebs : SSH on low bandwidth connections

Anybody got tips on how to make SSH on low bandwidth / bad connections (eg: 0-4KBps) more bearable?

This might help if you open several connections to the same server:

Also, you can use the -C option for compression (or put Compression yes in the appropriate place in your ~/.ssh/config file). If either machine is very CPU-starved or ancient, this might not be a big help, though.

thanks both of you

@bochecha

that tips helps in creating new connections .. but the lag when typing commands etc is still quite long..

@pfrields

i am using compression in my connection, though, its still not quite enough ..

I guess i had to live with this for the time being.

10-15seconds lag is kindof too long .. anyway .. thanks to both of you for responding
