I am running ubuntu under VMware. I connected my USB drive directly to ubuntu instead of through windows XP and i started transferring files from my mac leopard to ubuntu/usb HD
Most of the time the speed is 2.8MB/s. The scp command i used was something like
scp "name here@lanIP:./" ./
I dont want to stop the transfer to check. (.bash_history didnt show me my command)
Is this right for a transfer speed? my laptop and mac are connected via ethernet cable. The network should be 100mbp which makes me think i should get less then 12mb. Maybe 8MB per second. 2.8 seems slow. I am transferring >22gb so a slow transfer will make me suffer. By my time it will take roughly 3hours to complete.
