File transfer latency using SCP

File transfer with a vendor is very slow using SCP 

Disabled the server inspection, used app override, still no improvement. 

Its a 5250 palo running 8.1.10

Re: File transfer latency using SCP

is it possible to try with SFTP.


There are numerous threads on the internet over the years relating to SCP being slow ( nothing to do with firewalls ).  I have seen it connecting to a local server where SCP is slow and SFTP significantly faster (or actually normal).

Re: File transfer latency using SCP

we did try SFTP and FTP , however the results are not consistent, we still see latency. 

the traffic traverses through three palo alto's to reach the destination, and looks like its getting delayed in the palo alto. 

What can I check in the palo ? 

I have done application override, still no big difference.

Like what you see?
