I want to ssh into a laptop (Ubuntu) which will be connected through a 3G connection. Therefore I need to estimate how much data I will be using to choose a suiting plan.
Separate from file transfer, for which I can easily determine how much data will be used, what is the typical amount that an ssh session uses? Is there some sort of relation, e.g. that using
ls on a directory with 50 items will cost me a certain amount of data? Or is it more time dependent and does an ssh session transmit a certain amount of data per time interval, regardless of use?
