I always use either
scp in order to copy files from/to a remote machine. Recently, I discovered in the manual of
man scp) the flag
-C Compression enable. Passes the -C flag to ssh(1) to enable compression.
Before I discovered this flag, I used to
zip before and then
Is it as efficient to just use the
-C than zipping and unzipping? When is using one or another process make the transfer faster?
