scp question


when i am using scp to copy a file over it normally will show the upload speeds to look something like:

35KB/s

but today i have been having an issue with uploading a rather large file (200M) and this is what it looks like:

Code:
HP_Installer_OJ4300_6300_v9.5.dmg 69%  139MB -118809.-1KB/s   00:0
what in the world is -118809.-1KB/s mean? does that mean i am sending less then 1K? or does it mean something else?

Umm. Did the file transfer or not?

If it did, I was just thinking that the data type scp is using to hold your network transfer rate is too small. Are you on a really fast network where you might overflow the data type? It looks to me like a two's complement, signed integer over-flowed.

semi fast connection. 6000/768 IIRC. it did, but took way longer then it should of for the size of the file.

If it took way longer then it's something else. Sorry, it looked like a signed integer overflow.
