SCP strange behaviour
I'm experiencing rather strange behaviour of scp.
Once I gave the command to scp a file to a remote host, the transfer speed is very high. (Eg. 400KB/s).
And from the start the speed is gradually dropped rapidly. And comes near 0.0 KB/s.
And when the speed is low (below 100 KB/s ), time to time is says " - stalled -".
What is the reason for this ?
Thanks in advance.
