Description Patrick De Maziere 2008-01-08 03:50:23 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv: Gecko/20071128 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:

I have to copy/tranfer a bunch of files from one computer to another, and it should be done by means of ssh, so I opted for sftp:// or fish://

I opened two konqueror windows, one with an address on the local computer and one with an address on the remote one using either sftp or fish.
The transfer speeds varied around 600KByte/s. When I did the same transfer from the command prompt using scp or sftp, I obtained transfer-speeds of 20MByte/s.... 

Getting curious I tried it over and over but still with the same results. the kioslave ftp:// apparently did not suffer this problem.

I have a normal FC7 installation. So, standard ssh installation. Anyone suggestions on how to correct this ? Is it a kioslave and/or ssh setting, or is it a real bug ?

thanx in advance,

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdebase-3.5.8-9.fc7, kdelibs-3.5.8-7.fc7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description above: just drag & drop between two konqueror windows

Actual Results:
slow transfer

Expected Results:
fast transfer

I think you really have to talk to upstream KDE for performance issues like 
that. http://bugs.kde.org

Probably can't do much here, report it upstream pls if you haven't done so yet
